Art Library and Gallery open again

“Art belongs to the basic supply” claims Marcus Woeller, a freelancer in the feature section of the newspaper “Die Welt”, and reaps contradiction in a series of retweets, ranging from the lapidary “Äh. NEIN!” to the objection “Sport too!” to the apodictically presented demand “Only the bratwurst belongs to the basic supply”.

Be that as it may, the supply of original art is a matter of concern to us, which we can offer again with the relaxation of the corona measures. After all, museums and exhibitions will be allowed to open again from 4 May. The number of visitors is limited to one person per 15 square metres of accessible exhibition space. Calculated on the size of our facilities in the gallery and art library, this is a maximum of 5 people.

Unfortunately, we will still have to refrain from guided tours for groups and exhibition openings. However, we do offer individually guided visits, which can be arranged outside of regular opening hours (Mon-Fri 15-18 h) by telephone (04351 712500), by e-mail ( or by filling out the form on our homepage (

The exhibition “many handed” with monotypes by René J Goffin and Michael Jäger, which was closed in the past weeks, will continue until the beginning of June.

In addition, all loans in the art library will be extended by 12 months without fees. Those who prefer an exchange should also make an appointment here so that the necessary precautions for distancing and hygiene can be taken beforehand.

Works of art can only be discovered when dealing with originals.
