Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum


Well known throughout Europe for its outstanding collection of modern international sculpture, this museum offers an unusual combination of exceptional architecture placed in a sculpture park, as well as sculpture sited within the urban environs. Commencing with the life work of Wilhelm Lehmbruck and his contemporaries, the world of art encounters sculpture from all over the world in an exhibition space of 5000 square meters. Monographically and thematically grouped exhibition rooms are sequentially arranged in an open space. Paintings, works on paper and the new media complement the sculptural collection. The goal of all museum activities is to convey a vivid impression of the quality, development and range of modern sculpture to visitors from all walks of life. Besides the lifework of Wilhelm Lehmbruck the collection of international sculpture and modern object art represents the centrepiece of the museum's collection. It is complemented by sections on painting, graphics, photography and new media.

Museum DKM

 

The Museum DKM is located in the town center of Duisburg on Güntherstraße 13-15 between Kantpark with the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum and the Central Station. In 2005, the Swiss architect Hans Rohr faced the challenge of converting a residential and commercial property dating from the nineteen sixties consisting of a front-building and a courtyard structure, to which he could add a further building, into a museum for the artworks. In accordance with the donors’ concept, the museum’s design was intended to serve to display of art with noble reticence. The result was a museum-complex consisting of three buildings that encompass 51 gallery spaces stretching out over a total of 2,700 square meters on five levels. The spaces in the new building provide staged views of the outside section. The foyer containing the museum café provides visitors with a place to relax and refresh themselves.
