About the Museum
The Bucerius Kunst Forum in an exhibition center in Hamburg, Germany that was founded in 2002 by the ZEIT-Sitftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius foundation (named after Gerd Bucerius and his wife). The foundation was started in the 1970s for the promotion of science, art and education. The exhibition center today presents 3-4 exhibitions a year in cooperation with other institutions. Thematically these range from ancient times through the present day. A main focus, however, is modern art with recent exhibitions on Matisse, Picasso and Frida Kahlo. The thread throughout is the goal to take what is familiar and convert it into a new form so new relationships are observed.
It is located beside the Hamburg Rathaus at the Rathausmarkt in central Hamburg. The building was constructed in 1914-16 and is in the Neoclassical style with decorations highlighting the commercial life of Hamburg.
