Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg
Museum / Wolfsburg

The Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, one of the cultural beacons of the State of Lower Saxony, offers a fascinating experience space. Whether cultural history or contemporary global art, it always concerns intensity and knowledge of the world. Large-scale artistic projects, total installations or an entire urban space with artist houses: the Kunstmuseum is constantly retransforming itself. The spectacular exhibition hall offers unique opportunities to stage the art of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

The Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg opened in 1994 with a retrospective exhibition on the French artist Fernand Léger. Since then 130 exhibitions on modern and contemporary art have been presented.

In the more than twenty years since its opening the museum has shown large-scale retrospective exhibitions from the area of classic modern art, for example Fernand Léger, Bart van der Leck and Alberto Giacometti, much-noticed survey shows such as Full House, German Open, The Italian Metamorphosis 1943–1968 and Blast to Freeze. Monographic exhibitions have been devoted to such artists as Carl Andre, Andy Warhol, Luc Tuymans, Olafur Eliasson, Frank Stella, James Turrell, Imi Knoebel, and Jeppe Hein.
