presentation in the exhibition "Max Klinger and the Work of Art of the Future," Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn, 2020/2021
As the art and exhibition hall of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Bundeskunsthalle Bonn is a location for extraordinary exhibitions on art, culture and science. To create an unforgettable experience for visitors, innovative technologies are also used: For example, the monumental painting "The Crucifixion of Christ" by Max Klinger (1857-1920) can be experienced through augmented reality with 3D effects and holographic images - even from home. Due to Corona the exhibition was closed for four months.
With around 610,000 visitors per year (status 2019), the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany, or Bundeskunsthalle for short, is one of the most visited museums in Germany. The Bundeskunsthalle provides an exhibition area of 5,600 square meters and regularly shows up to four exhibitions at the same time from the fields of art and cultural history, science and technology. The program focuses on art from all epochs.
The Bundeskunsthalle has developed different audiences with whom dialogue is always sought. The task of the Bundeskunsthalle is to be a showcase, both nationally and internationally, for that open concept of culture which is central to the identity of the Federal Republic of Germany through its exhibitions and events.
