Museum für Moderne Kunst

This is a treat for all aficionados of modern art: a museum, located just to the north of the 'Dom', which houses an excellent cross-section of international art since the 1960s.

The Museum für Moderne Kunst (Museum for Modern Art, MMK for short) has work by Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Josef Beuys, Bruce Nauman, Nam June Paik, Bill Viola – in other words, all the usual suspects, plus many interesting others. The building itself is also a work of art in the same vein: a wedge-shaped post-modern construction completed in 1991, and affectionately nicknamed the 'Tortenstück' ('slice of cake') by locals.
