    MUSEUM FRIEDER BURDA

    She joins the phalanx of major German artistic positions since the 1970s, whose epicentre was above all the Rhineland: the artist Katharina Sieverding (born in Prague and raised in the Ruhr area, lives and works in Düsseldorf). Trained as a stage designer, it did not take her long to cast off any inhibitions about large scale images. As a student of Joseph Beuys, she focused her artistic energy on political issues. And as a photographer, she tested the boundaries of the medium’s manifold technical possibilities.

    Anyone who looks at Katharina Sieverding’s large-scale self-portraits – sometimes distorted by the glare of the sun, sometimes glinting metallically – quickly realizes that she is not one for artistic compromises...

    Coral reefs, with their vibrant colors, intricate, intertwined shapes and textured, tangled surfaces, are the central theme and motif of the Australian twins Margaret and Christine Wertheim (born in 1958 in Brisbane). As natural scientists, they analyze the aesthetics of mathematical theories and biological phenomena. In 2005, they set up the “Institute for Figuring (IFF)” in Los Angeles specifically for this purpose.

    Museum Frieder Burda

    In order to maintain the integral nature of the Collection and make it accessible to the public, a museum was built in Frieder Burda's home city of Baden-Baden. The plans have been drafted by the New York architect Richard Meier. The Museum Frieder Burda was inaugurated in the autumn of 2004 and will be fully financed and run by the Foundation Frieder Burda which was established in 1998.

    Architektur museum frieder burda

    The new museum for twentieth- and twenty-first-century art has been designed to integrate into the lush landscape of the Lichtentaler Allee Park and, at the same time, to harmonize in scale with the classical profile of the adjacent Staatliche Kunsthalle in Baden-Baden. Great efforts were taken to preserve as many trees as possible on the site, so that the Museum Frieder Burda would be harmoniously incorporated into the nature surrounding it. The overall form and proportions of the new building correspond to the elevated plinth and entablature of the Neoclassical Kunsthalle, but each institution maintains its own tectonic identity.

    Salon Berlin is Museum Frieder Burda’s new exhibition and project space at the Auguststraße 11- 13 in Berlin. Closely connected with the Museum in Baden-Baden, Salon Berlin, under the curatorial direction of Patricia Kamp, presents the diverse aspects of the museum programme and the Frieder Burda Collection. The exhibition space sees itself as a forum for international contemporary art, both a showroom and a space for experimentation for Museum Frieder Burda.
