Video Collection of the Kunstmuseum Bonn

In 1980, Ingrid Oppenheim gives her video collection to the Kunstmuseum Bonn on permanent loan: some 400 works by pioneers of video art, among them Joan Jonas, Alan Kaprow, Dennis Oppenheim, Peter Campus, Les Levine, Klaus vom Bruch, Marcel Odenbach, and Ulrike Rosenbach. The Kunstmuseum’s video collection is now one of the most important of its kind in Germany. Since 2006, the collection has been presented in the installation Odeon, an expansive and traversable architectural sculpture by the Munich artist Stefan Eberstadt. Here, two stations enable visitors to view the works.
