Arty Sunday

Last Sunday my friends and I were up for some cutural input and decided to head to the Munich museum district. Well, originally we met up for brunch but luckily the cafe was right in the middle of the district.

So after some refreshments we headed to the Pinakothek der Moderne to see a photographic exhibition of Albert Renger-Patzsch, Ruhr district landscapes in the 1920ies and 1930ies, showing dark and moody images of  mining industry landscapes.

And an exhibition of the work of the architect Francis Kéré called "Radically Simple".

At the entrance to the exhibition the visitor can pick up a pencil and a questionaire and this picure shows the station where to leave the pencils afterwards.

As a fan of modern architecture I sometimes get more enjoyment out of the building than the displayed pieces at the Pinakothek der Moderne.

Then we headed across the lawn to the Museum Brandhorst, which I also find very fascinating from the outside. It houses  among other works  about 170 pieces of Cy Twombly. I found his Roses very impressive.

All-in-all it was a very relaxed day, well spent in good company. 

Visit the Pinakotheken for 1€ on Sundays (Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Pinakothek der Moderne, Museum Brandhorst, Sammlung Schack).
