From series “Famous buildings of Postmodern architecture”
Year: 1982.

It will be interesting to visit the Museum Abteiberg for all fans of modern art, as well as those who are not indifferent to the original modern architecture. The museum was opened in the first half of the 20th century. Its exposition was quite small at that time. It occupied only a few rooms. Nevertheless, the cultural center has won the attention of thousands of people since its first years of operation. Its collection expanded rapidly. Visitors can see collections of art Nouveau, Expressionism, Constructivism, Pop Art, and many others today.

Abteiberg Museum, Germany Temporary exhibitions are often held in the museum. They are dedicated to a variety of areas of contemporary art. The museum has changed its location several times over the years as its collection has constantly expanded. The current building is a striking example of postmodernism. The Museum Abteiberg moved here more than a decade ago. Johannes Cladders is the founder of the museum. He became its first director afterward.

The building in which the museum is located today was designed by the famous Austrian architect Hans Hollein. The building built by him is characterized by a very complex structure. It has a large-scale underground part. As the architect notes, he sought to make the museum multidimensional and unpredictable, so that his visit turned into an exciting adventure. The museum moved to the current building in 1982. It became known all over the world for its large-scale collection of avant-garde art.

The year 1901 is considered the official date of the museum's foundation. It occupied several rooms in the city hall building for the first three years of its existence. The museum moved to the former Protestant school building in 1904. It was located there until 1925. The museum was moved to the Karl-Brandt House in 1926. It stayed there until 1944. This historic building was destroyed during the Second World War. So the museum had to find a new location. It was located in the Oskar-Kühlen-Haus building until 1982. The museum building is an outstanding architectural landmark of Monchengladbach today. Next - Bonnefanten Museum
