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.
