About the Museum
The relevance that contemporary art can have for us as we confront the fundamental issues of our contemporary lives provides the rationale for the conservation and exhibition of the Ege Art and Culture Foundation’s collection in the Kunstraum Alexander Bürkle.
The Museum puts on three to four exhibitions every year in which younger contemporary artists are given an opportunity to exhibit their works in a dialogue with established international elements in the collection. On these and other occasions, the public is invited to encounter the works in a quiet setting of clear and open exhibition rooms comprising nearly 1,000 square meters of space.
In recognition of the fact that contemporary art is not always easy to comprehend, the Museum offers free guided tours that are open to the general public and regularly plays host to art symposia and lectures on the occasion of special exhibitions. This extensive outreach program is rounded off by a series of publications that document past exhibitions or present the work of individual artists.
