Kunstmuseum Reutlingen

With two locations, three programmatic focal points and around 2,400 m2 of exhibition space, the Kunstmuseum Reutlingen is one of the largest municipal houses for modern and contemporary art in southwest Germany. The Kunstmuseum Reutlingen | Spendhaus, a six-storey half-timbered building built in 1519 as a granary for the care of donations, has been the venue for collection presentations and temporary exhibitions since the museum was founded in 1989.

The focus is on the one hand on the collection with its emphasis on artistic woodcuts and relief printing from the 19th century to the present. Important groups in the collection include works by Wilhelm Laage (1868-1930) and HAP Grieshaber (1909-1981). The donation of the Ziegler Collection, which was given to the Kunstmuseum in 1954, with its 1578 works on paper and 394 paintings from the Renaissance to the Romantic period, forms the basis of the municipal art collection. 50 years later, the Hamburg building contractor Peter Kemna donated his exquisite woodcut collection to the Kunstmuseum.

In addition to historical and contemporary positions in the field of woodcut and relief printing, the Kunstmuseum Reutlingen | Spendhaus presents monographic exhibitions and group exhibitions with contemporary artists whose works on paper or wood add new aspects to the medium. The exhibitions of the winners of the internationally renowned Jerg Ratgeb Prize are also held at the Spendhaus.
