Brücke-Museum is an open venue for the discussion, exploration and research of art and cultural concepts as well as social issues. As a continually developing institution, the museum is reliant on the perspectives, knowledge, experiences and recollections of many different people and interest groups. For this reason, Brücke-Museum collaborates with a wide variety of partners. 

Feel free to contact us with your ideas and suggestions for further projects.

Voices on the exhibition

Duration: February 2022

In February, three classes of the Dreilinden-Gymnasium visited the exhibition Whose Expression? The Brücke Artists and Colonialism. The results of their work on the exhibition can be heard and seen by clicking on the link below. The work offers an insight into the thoughts, questions and feelings they have on the exhibition at the Brücke-Museum. The contribution represents an important and valuable enrichment to the exhibition.

Naturally Art!
School collaboration

Duration: December 2019 – August 2020

In exchange with children and young people from two Berlin schools, we would like to find out what a redesign and new use of the museum garden could look like in the sense of the Brücke. Drawing and painting of people in nature was one of the core themes of the artists’ group. The Brücke-Museum, created especially for the artists, blends into the forest landscape and combines nature, art and architecture. The expressionist group created such connections in their works.

How can the museum’s garden today become a place where different people like to spend time? How can young people in particular get involved in museum work and create their own spaces in the garden? The interaction between art and nature can be experienced and tested on the museum’s grounds and in the adjoining forest.

Interventions at Brücke-Museum – Working with the Public
University collaboration

Duration: April–July 2020

In the seminar Interventions at Brücke-Museum – Working with the Public, interdisciplinary teamwork develops approaches to art education based on design and art. The cooperation with the Brücke-Museum from 2019 will now be continued and deepened under difficult conditions during the digital semester.

First of all, various approaches to art education will be analysed using selected formats. Questions of performativity and interaction will be discussed. In the related artistic-practical part, mediation concepts can be developed that move between the museum building and the collection as well as the garden and nature. Finally, the developed concepts will be realised together with the public on 15 July 2020, 12 noon–4 pm.

New presentation: The Brücke-Museum. Texts for an up-to-date collection presentation
University collaboration

Duration: April – July 2020

Since 2017, Brücke-Museum has been under a new management. The view on the in-house artists Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Otto Mueller and their colleagues is to be updated and anchored in the present. With this in mind, the museum is striving for close cooperation with scientists and artists. The first temporary exhibitions already show that many research questions have remained unanswered after the stylistic development of Brücke Expressionism had been in the foreground since the museum was founded in 1967.

Out of this desideratum, the project seminar is conceived with practical relevance to museum activities as its focus. The participants are introduced to the history of Brücke art as well as to different functions and hierarchies of texts in the museum by Meike Hoffmann (Kunsthistorisches Institut, Freie Universität Berlin), Lisa Marei Schmidt (Director, Brücke-Museum) and Daniela Bystron (Curator of Outreach, Brücke-Museum). On this basis, the participants write their own texts for works or groups of works from the collection of Brücke-Museum.
