Baden-Baden’s Museum Frieder Burda was built in 2004 to hold the expansive art collection of Frieder Burda (1936-2019). Burda’s father, Franz Burda, founded a small printing business in 1938 that would—with the help of his son Frieder—expand to become one of Germany’s leading media companies, Hubert Burda Media. Alongside his involvement in the family business, Frieder Burda nurtured a strong interest in art and became an active collector. His collection is housed in an exquisite contemporary building designed by New York based architect Richard Meier, and includes important works by eminent artists of the 20thcentury. On now until 29 September is the Ensemble exhibition in partnership with the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The exposition honours Burda’s ties to the Centre Pompidou as the first and only German member of the museum’s purchasing commission. Curated by the Pompidou’s Deputy Director, Brigitte Léal, the exhibition creates a dialog between 20th-century works by artists living in France and Germany. The Ensemble exhibition is a great chance to see historic artworks in the peaceful setting of Museum Frieder Burda.
