New presentation of the collection

17.09.2022 -

ith the new exhibition floor in the north wing, the Kunstmuseum Magdeburg has more space for art. A large brass mansard roof spans the new building from the city side, while the inside of the monastery courtyard follows the medieval cubatures and blends in with the appearance of the cloister.

Large windows open up the view of the city from the new exhibition space and enable the art to be staged in the light-flooded rooms.

The exhibition area offers space to present the results of the collecting activities of the last 20 years - primarily works of international contemporary art in painting and photography. These include works by Liliane Tomasko, Sven Johne, Brian Eno, Xanti Schwawinsky, Alica Paz and Peter Herrmann.

In the course of the construction work in the north wing of the art museum, the upper barrel vault or former refectory was also renovated. As before, international art after 1945 will find its place here.
