New exhibition

"Former Jewish-owned property" –
Art works acquired by the Münchner Stadtmuseum during National Socialism

April 27 until September 23, 2018
Münchner Stadtmuseum

A key research priority for the Münchner Stadtmuseum is to systematically investigate the provenance of the works of art contained in its own collections. We now intend to present this research for the first time in a public exhibition designed to shine a light on the history of our museum during the Nazi era. The exhibition offers a snapshot of this ongoing review, and charts the biographies of a number of items from the Museum’s various collections, from fields as varied as graphics and painting, fashion and textiles, artisan craftwork and furniture, musical instruments, and puppets. This is the first time that any museum of art and cultural history has mounted an exhibition on this important topic with items selected from throughout its extensive collections.
