Pinakothek der Moderne


Housing four institutions under one roof devoted to art, works on paper, architecture and design, the Pinakothek der Moderne ranks as one of the great art museums in Europe. At the centre of the building is the glass rotunda that serves as a vibrant meeting place. From 2019 on the rotunda will regularly feature special, site-specific works.

Anish Kapoor is considered one of today’s most influential contemporary artists. At the invitation of the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen the artist has created a site-specific sculpture for the Rotunda, the central hub of the Pinakothek der Moderne, that will be installed on 16 September 2020 to mark the opening of the Pinakothek der Moderne exactly 18 years ago. Kapoor’s installation will transform viewers’ experience of the space and form a focal point in the ‘Kunstareal’ museum complex in Munich for eleven months.
