Tuesday – Sunday 12pm-6pm
A new home for art has sprung up since May 2010 in a prominent neighbourhood between the KW Institutes for Contemporary Art and the largest inner-city football ground in Europe: Thomas Olbricht, heir to the Wella estate, doctor and passionate art collector, has built a whole house here entirely devoted to his considerable private collection. Here you can now see the most extensive private collection in Europe with works from the beginning of the 16th century to recent contemporary art in changing exhibitions. In the midst of all this Olbricht would like to offer a “world of discovery” in his house as well: subject-specific tours through the collection, specially developed collections for the Me Collectors shop plus a café round off the visit to the exhibition. This is the main difference between the Me Collectors Room and other private collections open to the public.
