Nicolas Party’s exhibition at the Museum Frieder Burda is the Swiss artist’s first museum presentation in Germany. Party has transformed the entire ensemble of rooms in Richard Meier’s distinctive building, located in the middle of a park landscape, into a conceptionally planned painting universe that visitors can enter. Impressive groups of luminous pastels as large murals, and small oil paintings on copper intervene in the museum’s architectural spaces, creating an exceptionally magical power of attraction.The artist, who was born in 1980, is known for conceiving his exhibitions as large-scale i...
Is it impossible — or perhaps not? Impossible proves that art and its diverse modes of expression can give a form to phenomena that are not actually possible.
This exhibition enables viewers to immerse themselves in worlds of images and objects that are derived from an elementary, history-related, and often ironically humorous understanding of art. The works are surprising, bewildering, amusing, and irritating. They challenge the audience’s perception of time and space, making connections to cinem...
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.
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.
The Museum Frieder Burda offers its visitors a diverse education programme for all age groups. In addition to regular public tours of the current exhibitions, we also offer private tours with experienced art educators. These tours, which are non-refundable and must be reserved in advance, include immediate entry to exhibitions without waiting or queueing.
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.
More than just a museum store. In addition to catalogs, art prints and posters, the Museum Frieder Burda Concept Store offers a wide range of exclusive jewelry as well as highly decorative furnishings such as vases, tableware, textiles and even individual pieces of furniture. The idea behind the concept: Everything you see can be bought.
The Concept Store can also be visited without a museum ticket. Simply contact our staff in the checkout area.
