The core of Weserburg’s artistic programme is comprised of modern art from private collections. In regularly changing displays of consigned pieces, and in numerous special exhibitions, the fascinating development of art since the 1960s is presented inside the unique location of a former warehouse.
Of critical importance is the Zentrum für Künstlerpublikationen (Centre for Artists’ Publications). Essentially a "museum in a museum" it contains the largest collection in Europe of published artworks from all over the entire world and is used for research as well as utilized for numerous exhibits.
Forum der Kunstvermittlung (Arts Education Forum)
With a multifaceted arts education programme, where in addition to weekly guided tours of the exhibits, concerts, lectures, performances, film screenings and readings are held, the Weserburg is a setting where the examination of trends in modern art takes place.
Together with the GAK, the Gesellschaft für aktuelle Kunst, which is also housed inside the Weserburg, the Weserburg on the Teerhof isle is Bremen’s centre for modern and contemporary art.
