Hamburg Germany Art
Hamburg, the second largest city in Germany, has a lively art scene that offers something for everyone. With its renowned permanent collection of internationally renowned artists and the Kunsthalle Museum, Hamburg has established itself as a prominent art capital. It was built in 1867 and contains a collection of over 1,000 works by some of Germany's most famous artists. The Kunsthalla Museum, also known for its extensive collection of late 19th and early 20th century art, as well as contemporary art from the early 21st century and the post-war period, is one of Hamburg's most important cultural institutions and a focal point of cultural life.
The permanent collection of the Kunsthalle Museum includes over 1,000 works by some of the most famous German artists from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the post-war period and contemporary art.
Highlights include works from the German Romantic period, including works by Runge Friedrich, and 17th-century Dutch paintings, including Rembrandt. The collection also includes works by artists such as Gertrude Stein, Jules Verne, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Henri Matisse. Galleries of classical and modern art show works by artists such as Gustav Klimt and Edvard Munch, as well as works from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Highlights of the collection include works from the German Romantic period, including works by Runge Friedrich, 17th-century Dutch paintings with Rembrandt, and modern works by Klimt and Edvard Munch. The Kunststuhl, a museum of contemporary art in the capital Hamburg, focuses on art and culture in Germany, the United States and other parts of Europe.
The exhibition shows exhibitions in two former office buildings as well as exhibitions in the Kunststuhl Museum für Neue Kunst Hamburg and the Kunstmuseum Hamburg.
The gallery houses its collection in an industrial area, but its owners also hold exhibitions in less established art forms such as ceramics, sculpture and photography. The gallery owner also runs a gallery in downtown Hamburg with a large collection of contemporary art.
Dr. Barbara Aust-Wegemund is also involved in researching and developing new approaches to art education for children and young people in Hamburg. This project is funded by the German Research Foundation for Children and Youth (DFG) and is a cooperation between the University of Hamburg and the Hamburg Museum of Contemporary Art (BAM).
This year's festival runs from 7 to 12 September 2020 and over 80 local, national and international galleries will present a true festival of contemporary art. With thousands of works, including paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs, priced between 7 and 500 euros, this four-day art fair is a great opportunity for budding art collectors to learn more about the world's most popular contemporary artists and their works. The AHC PROJECTS Gallery exhibits original paintings and sculptures to support young artists. International stars of the urban art scene come to Hamburg-Harburg to further grow their talents.
The old factory Valentinskamp from the 20th century, which is registered as a cultural monument in the Hamburg Register and where most exhibitions, concerts, workshops and lectures take place, is the centre of a lively alternative district. The context of Harburg is created by a mixture of traditional and contemporary art, as well as contemporary and modern art. There is also a walk through the old town and a number of art galleries, museums, galleries and restaurants.
The striking cubist building houses the Galerie der Gegenwart, an institution that houses an ever-changing selection of art from the 1960s pop art movement. The Haus der Photographie similarly honours some of the best international photographs and traces the emergence of the medium to this day.
The Kunsthalle is divided into two sections: the northern part of the space dedicated to contemporary art, including the Gallery of Contemporary Art and the House of Photography, and the southern part, which houses the Museum of Contemporary Art.
In response to the changing landscape of contemporary art, the Kunsthalle's enviable collection of Old Masters is balanced by the contemporary works of the Galerie der Gegenwart. The exhibition includes works by artists such as Yves Saint Laurent, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paul Gauguin, Hans Herzog and Franz Klimt. On a cultural level, Hamburg has impressed with its rich art and cultural history as well as its lively and diverse art scene.
