Create an itinerary including The Walther Collection
The Walther Collection is a private non-profit organization dedicated to researching, collecting, exhibiting, and publishing modern and contemporary photography and video art. The Collection has two exhibition spaces: the Walther Collection in Neu-Ulm/Burlafingen, in Germany, and the Walther Collection Project Space in 'New York City.
Established by German-American art collector Artur Walther, the Walther Collection opened in June 2010 in Neu-Ulm/Burlafingen, Germany. The Walther Collection Project Space opened in New York City in April 2011. The Walther Collection incorporates works across regions, periods, and artistic sensibilities, giving particular focus to artists and photographers working in Asia and Africa.
The Walther Collection's main exhibition venue is a four-building museum compound in Neu Ulm/Burlafingen, Germany. The principal buildings – the White Box, Green House, and Black House – provide gallery space for the annual exhibition program. A fourth building on the campus accommodates administrative offices and a library. Designed by the Ulm-based architectural firm Braunger Wörtz, the White Box is a light-filled, three story minimalist structure that houses the Walther Collection's main galleries, and hosts thematic exhibitions and commissioned projects. The Green House, a former residential home, is used for small-format works. The Black House, a bungalow-style structure, is used for the presentation of serial, performance, and conceptual-style photography.

  • Why should disabled people have access to art?! No lift, extremely steep staircase, no awareness of the problem. While I can understand certain limitations when it comes to historic buildings...

  • I don’t know where to start. When living in LA I always drove to the Getty Center, when living in New York I used to visit all the time The Met and since I have been living in Ulm for the last two years as an architect I was looking for you. Today was the day I met this incredible architectural piece. The exhibition was fantastic and I loved every second of it but I was more into the minimalist architectural language what made me happy. A new place to come visit more often where I can just feel a beautiful space, where I feel alive again.
  • Brilliant exhibition & collection in a calm neighbourhood where you’d never expect to find those. The recent exhibition about Chinese contemporary photography and video art is very informative and shows the most important positions of the contemporary Chinese art scene
