Fragile Treasures of the Prinzhorn Collection

"Ein mehrfacher Millionenwerth" (“Worth More Than Many Millions“)

May 27 to October 31, 2020

In addition to the newly established permanent exhibition of the museum, drawings, oil paintings, books, textiles and collages from the unique Prinzhorn Collection will be shown.

These fragile treasures are now united in an exhibition. Read more...
