Great museum!
Dec 2019
This art museum is characterized by the fact that it always hosts 2-4 special exhibitions. There are no permanent exhibits. Therefore it is interesting to visit it again and again in certain intervals, because then you will be surprised with completely new exhibitions. You can buy tickets for the individual exhibitions or one ticket for all exhibitions. As there are constant changes of exhibitions, I don't want to go into detail about them, because they will probably no longer be there when you read this text. In any case, a visit to this museum is worthwhile.

Not for everyone
Dec 2019 • Couples
We visited this exhibition space as we happened to be close by at the art gallery.
Quite a few different things are on at the same time, pay for an individual exhibition or all together.
I would probably only recommend going if there was something you are really interested in or you have some free ticket.
Easy to get to via underground and bus.
Thought it was expensive for what was actually in the exhibits as they are far from groundbreaking in my opinion.

open air concert venue
Jun 2019 • Family
We have been to the Bundeskunsthalle on occasions to see the exhibitions and to participate on events on the landscaped roof garden which serves as a public space for sculpture and garden exhibitions.
The museum's main purpose is to hold exhibitions relating to art, culture, history, science, technology and the environment. Lectures and discussions are also held on the same topics.
However, on Sunday, 9th June 2019, beautiful summer weather and dazzling swing by Engelbert Wrobel's quartet launched the open-air concerts on the roof Bundeskunsthalle
The three iconic cones covered in bright blue majolica tiles are a well known landmark of Bonn, and provide a super setting in the rooftop garden for the open air concert.

It is highly recommended to visit the Bundeskunsthalle; and the garden must be visited at least every season.

Claims to be world-class, delivers only in part
Jul 2018 • Couples
The Bundeskunsthalle is the federally-owned art space of Germany. It houses world-class exhibitions by most renowned artist. We went there for the retrospective exhibition on Marina Abramovic, "The Cleaner". While it is definitely a gift to have an exhibition of this kind in such a city, but the way it is delivered rewards improvement. Firstly, there are quite a lot of typos in the decriptive panes. Also, the description and presentation testifies a somewhat superficial and physical understanding of Marina's artwork. I was particularly baffled by the fact that for the re-performance of "Imponderabilia" they had choose two female performers who even looked irritated when a visitor passed through and complained about their feet being touched. No doubt: It is very hard to re-perform such a piece. But if you don't get the right people for it, don't do. In art it's better not to do something instead of doing it badly.

Gurlitt exhibition...
Mar 2018 • Solo
I came to Bonn especially to see this exhibition before it closed at the end of the week. An amazing collection of works which will probably never be shown together again. Impossible not to feel the Poignancy of the history associated with this collection.and how so many outstanding works could have lain undiscovered for so many years; mind blowing!!!!

Intriguing exhibition of Looted Art
Feb 2018 • Solo
Spent three hours in the Gurlitt exhibition “ Status Report” . This exhibition is brilliantly curated and displayed in German and English and very well laid out to tell the full story of this intriguing man Who seemed to manage to wheel and deal with everyone to his own advantage during the Hitler years and carry on after the war in prestigious posts even though he worked as the dealer for the Nazis buying art for the gallery that Hitler was planning ....
The paintings displayed are of very varied subjects and ages, but the story behind this collection is heart wrenching and tragic and somehow almost unbelievable .
Very good film as well which shows how the pictures were recovered and preserved .
Make sure you get there early in the day as it was very crowded after midday .

Bestandaufnahme Gurlitt
Jan 2018 • Friends
This is the "other half" of the Gurlitt exposition I saw two weeks ago in Bern. First of all, the Bundeskunsthalle is very well organized, which the Kunstmuseum in Bern wasn't. With my pre-purchased ticket I was able to walk right by the ticket counter and enter the exhibit. I enjoyed seeing this half of the Gurlitt collection, as the art in this exhibit consisted of far more paintings. All the information and labels were printed in both German and English. The art was very well displayed with plenty of room to move around, and the the lighting was strikingly effective. Unfortunately, in Bern I often cast a shadow on the work I was trying to view. However, in the exhibit itself in the Bundeskunsthalle there is nowhere to sit down other than carry-along stools they provide.

Gurlitt Provenance Research
Dec 2017 • Couples
This showed research into the provenance of the chameleon art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt who knew how to exploit people and their needs or desires for his survival.
Contemporary art on show included a working popcorn machine, a video of people answering "No" to immigration form security questions, and a good selection of modern art.
