In the middle of the state capital Magdeburg is the art museum Kloster Unser Lieben Frauen, the oldest surviving building in Magdeburg and at the same time the most important place for contemporary art and sculpture in Saxony-Anhalt. The architecture and history of the building reflect in a way the eventful history of the town, which has been shaped by prosperity, destruction and the will to rebuild.

The unique situation of an art museum in a Romanesque building complex is both extraordinary and exciting. Presenting the collection and the special exhibitions on contemporary art in Romanesque architecture means confrontation, discussion and reference to the present and the past, enables comparison and recognition of correspondences and breaks.

The focus of the collection and exhibitions is not on bygone eras, but on art as a living, time-dependent, changing system. By consciously avoiding predetermined walking directions through the architecture, art collection and special exhibitions, the special experience of space remains for the visitor as an opportunity for a modern reception behaviour.
