DESCRIPTION

The museum’s wide-ranging exhibition program encompasses classics of modernism along with internationally established contemporaries and younger, innovative artists. Equal emphasis is assigned to traditional and new media in the fine arts. The permanent collection specializes in selected examples of contemporary art. The exhibition program and activities of the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg have been accompanied since 2006 by an overarching question: In Pursuit of Modernism in the 21st Century. This reorientation represents a kind of “browser” that traces the present and the future of modernism’s aesthetic ideas by means of thematic exhibitions. Museums are time machines that combine the past, present and future like no other social institution and have a responsibility to represent and focus civil society’s viability and survivability over and above short-lived fashions. With its guiding theme, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg has determined a role for itself that is unprecedented in this form, representing a distinct and independent path between classic art education and enlightenment, demanding contemporaneity and entertainment: Modernism Project
