Königsklasse IV. CONTEMPORARY ART AT HERRENCHIEMSEE PALACE. FROM DAN FLAVIN TO WOLFGANG LAIB

Pinakothek der Moderne
Schloss Herrenchiemsee

 ‐ 

KÖNIGSKLASSE or ‘of royal calibre’ serves as both exhibition title and mark of distinction of the stellar contemporary artworks from the collection of the Pinakothek der Moderne on show in Herrenchiemsee Palace, built by Bavarian King Ludwig II. The display beyond the usual confines of the museum invites visitors to take a fresh look at major works by Wolfgang Laib, Arnulf Rainer, Etel Adnan, Günther Förg, Dan Flavin, On Kawara, Kazuo Shiraga, Hans-Jörg Georgi, and John Chamberlain. In this unique venue, the art is given the space to unfurl and radiate against the backdrop of the raw brickwork of the palace’s north wing and, beyond that, the natural scenery of the wooded island as it changes with the passing seasons.

#PinaKönigsklasse

In cooperation with the Bayerische Schlösserverwaltung and made possible by International Patrons of the Pinakothek.

The KÖNIGSKUNDE art education programme is funded by PIN. Freunde der Pinakothek der Moderne e.V., DJE Kapital AG and by International Patrons of the Pinakothek.

Königskunde
is the name of the programme run by a team of young art educators, open to visitors of all ages
who want to engage with the exhibits not merely on their own, but in a dialogue of ideas.
The KÖNIGSKUNDE team is on hand throughout the exhibition; visitors are free to strike up a
conversation with them about the art on show in each room.

Königsweg
Art moves people on the move. At the Pinakothek der Moderne and Museum Brandhorst in Munich
there are lots more artist rooms to explore, dedicated to such diverse figures as Georg Baselitz,
Joseph Beuys, Walter de Maria, Dan Flavin, Anselm Kiefer, Wolfgang Laib, Blinky Palermo,
Cy Twombly and Andy Warhol.

Tranquility on the island
During your visit of the KÖNIGSKLASSE exhibition, explore the Old and New Castle as well as the quiet corners of the Herreninsel with walking paths through meadows, shady forests and along the shore. The castle café offers visitors snacks and drinks in the middle of the island. In the Schlosswirtschaft directly at the ship's dock, you can enjoy the food and the view of the surrounding mountains high above the lake.

From Munich and from Salzburg, two trains leave each hour for Prien am Chiemsee and back. The average journey time is 50 or 58 minutes.
From Prien / Stock a boat connection to the island can be reached every 30 minutes. Exact departure times can be found on the website of the Chiemsee-Schifffahrt, the plans on site or the current summer timetable (PDF)
