Pinakothek der Moderne | Kunst
Collection+ | Room 22-24


The Photography and Media Art Collection, along with the Written Art Collection, casts a spotlight on artistic positions in the Middle East in a three-room sequence. The works represent alternative perspectives of life's realities, which are based on both the protagonists' individual experiential horizons and social systems.

Under the title Collection+, the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungene (Bavarian State Painting Collections) in the Pinakothek der Moderne will be presenting studio exhibitions within the context of the collection. Presentations of new acquisitions, loans and artist rooms reveal the laborious work involved in gathering, maintaining and researching the collections, shining a light on the scholarly investigations into them and their contemporary relevance.
