Established in Hagen in 1902 as the successor to the Folkwang Museum, the Osthaus Museum Hagen consciously deals with contemporary art in the tradition which is today called “Hagener
Impuls”. In the Henry van de Velde art nouveau rooms and addional rooms, classic modern works and international contemporary art are displayed. This is supplemented
by a diverse programme of changing special exhibitions as well as an active art education in the “Junges Museum” (young museum).
The collection includes Modern Classics, especially German Expressionism and Christian Rohlfs, a painter who has been working in Hagen.
Special exhibitions present international contemporary art.
In the room called „Architecture of memory“ by Sigrid Sigurdson, the visitors can actively take part in a project which deals with individual and collective memory.
The „Young Museum“ experiments with new ways of approaching art for people of every social background and age group.
The Osthaus Museum invites its visitors to sensual enjoyment and inspiring exchange under the motto „A celebration of the arts.“
