The Weserburg Museum of Modern Art, Bremen's home for international contemporary art, is located directly on the River Weser in former warehouse buildings on the Teerhof.

Changing solo and thematic group exhibitions as well as a long-term collection presentation enable a lively examination of art from the 1960s to the present day on an exhibition space of around 5000 square metres. Close partnerships with private and corporate collections form the basis for realising an exciting approach to contemporary art in various formats and in addition to the museum's own collection holdings.

International Orientation and Regional Roots

The Weserburg Museum of Modern Art offers an insight into international art in a variety of exhibitions, events, educational formats and scholarly publications. One focus is on high-quality positions of Fluxus and Nouveau Réalisme, Sound, Conceptual and Minimal Art - movements that shape the programme in dialogue with the art of the 21st century. In addition to its decidedly international orientation, the Weserburg Museum of Modern Art is also committed to outstanding regional positions and the promotion of young talent.

The Centre for Art Publications

The Weserburg Museum of Modern Art has a unique collection of art publications and written material in Europe. The Centre for Artists' Publications functions as an archive, research institute and exhibition venue in equal measure. The numerous archives, estates, funds and collections work with well over 300,000 published, reproduced and published works of art from all over the world - from stamps to books, correspondence, films, videos and records to multimedia editions.
