Kunstmuseum Bonn

The Kunstmuseum Bonn is a major, highly respected museum of contemporary art. The new building, designed by the Berlin architect Axel Schultes and opened in 1992, is one of the most important museum buildings to have been built in Germany in past few decades.

The collection at the Kunstmuseum Bonn, that comprises some 7,500 works, forms the heart of the museum and moulds its identity with pivotal groups of works by August Macke and the ‘Rheinishe Expressionisten’, as well as the important collection of German art from 1945 with an emphasis on painting and its extended forms of expression. A special feature of the museum that is unique in Germany is its concentration on a modest number of exceptional artists whose works are comprehensively shown in spacious rooms devoted in each case to one artist. The thematic and monographic exhibition projects, aimed at an international public, normally have a close context to the permanent collection.
