Berlin is Germanys art capital
Old Masters and young galleries, historical art treasures and off-spaces. Berlin offers a unique wealth and diversity of art, making it easily Germanys most important art city. Berlins public museums, scattered throughout the city, are filled with innumerable historical treasures. But they owe their wealth of modern and contemporary art to important private collections like those of Heinz Berggruen and Erich Marx. Today, other collectors, such as Christian Boros, are building their own temples of contemporary art. They chose locations in districts which galleries have already made arty, as they gradually take over the city district by district.
