In the middle of Munich’s vibrant Maxvorstadt neighborhood, the Museum Brandhorst provides a unique environment to take a closer look at the formative positions of art since 1960. Internationally renowned artists and younger voices are united under one roof. The collection and the program of the museum stand for an in-depth research on individual artists and an intensive examination of relevant topics in the visual arts.
The Museum Brandhorst has its roots in the private collection of Anette and Udo Brandhorst. Transferred to a foundation in 1993, the collection was made accessible to the public with the opening of Museum Brandhorst in 2009 and has since been part of the Bavarian State Painting Collections. The fruitful cooperation between the Free State of Bavaria and the Udo und Anette Brandhorst Stiftung continues. While the state guarantees the operation of the museum, the foundation enables the continuous expansion of the collection. Since the opening of the museum, the collection has almost doubled in size, from 700 to more than 1,200 works.
