Buchheim Museum

Buchheim Collection – Museum of Imagination

For the collections of Lothar-Günther Buchheim - painter, photographer, publisher, author of art books and novels – architect  Günter Behnisch has designed an open and multi-segmental structure that reflects the museum's extraordinary diversity: a pan-cultural encounter and an exciting dialogue between the art of Expressionist and their inspirational sources from Africa and the South Seas.

Masterpieces of Expressionism

Buchheim's collection  encompasses an extraordinarily wide spectrum of outstanding Expressionist art.

At the heart of the collection are paintings, watercolors, drawings, woodcuts, etchings and lithographs by artists of the group “Brücke”, which included the artists Kirchner, Heckel and Schmidt-Rottluff, as well as Pechstein and Mueller. The holdings found in the Buchheim collection not only provide an impressive overview of “Brücke” art, which marks the beginning of modern art in Germany. Groups of works by Lovis Corinth, Max Beckmann and Oskar Kokoschka complement the “Brücke” art.

Alternating exhibitions display Picasso, Chagall, Léger, Miró and further artists of the École de Paris as well as paintings from Lothar-Günther Buchheim.

Opening hours:

  • Tuesday - Sunday, and on bank holidays from 10 am to 6 pm
