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.

colourful . farbenfroh - In Focus: Dorothy Fratt
At the heart of the exhibition colourful . farbenfroh at Museum Art.Plus in Donaueschingen are paintings by the American artist Dorothy Fratt (1923-2017) who passed away earlier this year.

Almost entirely unfamiliar to European audiences, the painter is a real discovery. Her work should be seen in the context of the Washington Art School, a group of abstract artists active in Washington D.C. from the late 1950s to the late 1960s. Parallel to the Abstract Expressionism and Colour Field Painting of the New York School, they created large-format paintings that were less concerned with gesture than with the plane, and developed a formal language that explored the interplay of colours and their effect on the viewer. Although Dorothy Fratt left Washington D.C. for Arizona in 1958, she remained true to the style, developing and refining it until her death in the summer of 2017. She left behind an extensive body of work that has yet to be discovered in Europe.

The exhibition is the first in Europe to show a representative selection of works by the artist ranging from the 1960s to the present. They are complemented by colourful two- and three-dimensional works by other international artists

Ulrich Möckel (in the 2-RAUM of the Museum Art.Plus)

Ulrich Möckel’s (*1949) principal interest is the tree and, with it, the material wood. He explores its potential and range between natural and artificial form and the depth of symbolism that attaches to it.

Möckel’s starting point is usually the tree as he finds it in nature. He draws, processes and abstracts it. He may recreate its contours and cross sections in different materials such as iron, concrete or neon tubes, or work the wood in ways that give it a new, unfamiliar appearance, without, however, changing its character.

Driven by his desire to form and to learn, the sculptor explores the phenomena of forest and tree and their aesthetics in ever greater depth to create a continuous stream of symbolically charged works.

The exhibition at Museum Art.Plus presents a representative selection of drawings and sculptures from the past two decades as well as brand new works.

Zimoun - Installations
On the occasion of the Music Days, Donaueschingen

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

The Bern-based artist Zimoun (*1977) uses everyday objects and industrial materials such as cartons, motors or welding wire to create minimalist sound installations of astonishing power. Created specifically for the 2-Raum, the works transform the space into a soundscape that invites visitors to immerse themselves in a three-dimensional sound composition.
Curator: Björn Gottstein (Artistic Director Music Days Donaueschingen)

In cooperation with Donaueschinger Musiktage
Realized with kind support from Bromberger Verpackungen and prohelvetia
