The Franz Marc Museum in Kochel am See has been dedicated to the work of Franz Marc since it was established in 1986. The extension opened in 2008 offers new possibilities for the museum concept.
In the modern exhibition building, which expands the old building with an exhibition area of 700 m2, the work of Franz Marc can be put into a new context. His oeuvre, represented beforehand solely by the collection of the Franz Marc Foundation, can be contrasted with the work of his contemporaries like the “Brücke” artists thanks to the addition of the collection of the Etta and Otto Stangl Foundation. In dialogue with works of German post-war abstraction, Franz Marc can also be appreciated in terms of his effect on the art of the second half of the 20th century.
A regularly redesigned hanging within the Franz Marc Museum and annually changing exhibitions explore the different aspects of the collection and present Franz Marc in the entirety of his artistic and theoretical work and in his personality as defined by a visionary spirit of reform.
