Fragile Treasures of the Prinzhorn Collection

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

March 26, 2020 to August 16, 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 extraordinary works established the worldwide fame of the collection. Their increasingly fragile state forbids the permanent presentation and the lending to other museums. These fragile treasures are now united in an exhibition.
