Museum Art.Plus invites you to discover contemporary art in the setting of a beautifully refurbished neoclassical building located in the immediate vicinity of the source of the Danube and the palace gardens. Showcasing a wide range of current artistic practices, the museum offers a fascinating and varied insight into the international contemporary art scene. In addition and parallel to a large annual group exhibition, it presents up to three smaller exhibitions and actively promotes outstanding regional artists.

Away from the frenzied pace of the contemporary art world, Museum Art.Plus with its exhibitions and coordinated programme of events – concerts and performances, films, artists’ talks, workshops and regular guided tours – is an attractive platform for cultural exchange in the region and beyond.

VOLLGAS - FULL SPEED

 
Museum Art.Plus devotes its big annual exhibition to all things automobile. No other high-tech consumer good has ever been subject to a comparable degree of mythologization. Artistic engagement with cars is almost as old as the car itself. Cars polarise; as an explosive political and social issue, they have always exercised the creative imagination of artists. At the same time, the car remains a symbol of freedom, mobility and adventure - an object of desire and a fetish.
Museum Art.Plus presents works by international artists who focus on the car and speed. Complementing the display is a group of legendary sports cars that will make the hearts of car enthusiasts skip a beat.

Angela Bulloch (in the 2-RAUM of the Museum Art.Plus)

 
Complementing the Donaueschingen Music Festival, Museum Art.Plus is showing works by Angela Bulloch (b.1966) in the 2-Raum. Bulloch, who is recognised as one of the so-called ‘Young British Artists' who shook up the British art world in the 1990s, works in a wide range of media. Her main interest are systems, patterns and rules. In Donaueschingen, the artist presents a number of sound-activated drawing machines that respond to the sound of music. Although viewers are not privy to the sound, they witness the visualisation of music.

The exhibition is a cooperation of Museum Art.Plus with the Donaueschingen Music Festival and curated by the festival's artistic director Björn Gottstein.

Pierre Soulages (Special display in the extension of Museum Art.Plus)
 

Museum Art.Plus is presenting a selection of works by the French painter Pierre Soulages (*1919 Rodez, FR) in its modern extension.
 
Soulages one of the leading international abstract artists and one of the last living members of a generation that redefined modern art after the end of the Second World War. The colour black has always been central to his creative practice.
 
"Pour moi, le noir, c'est un excès, une passion." - "For me, black is an excess, a passion," the artist sums up his obsession with his favourite colour. Since the end of the 1970s, Soulages has been painting only monochrome black canvases. He refers to them as "Outrenoirs" (beyond black). Their densely impastoed, surfaces - part glossy, part matte - are structured and enlivened by deep diagonal, vertical and horizontal lines and furrows. The way these enter into a fascinating and ever-changing dialogue with the light bears out the artist's contention that for him black is a colour of light.
