Since opening its doors in 2004, the Langen Foundation has been offering the public an opportunity to experience art, architecture and landscape in an atmosphere of balanced harmony. The exhibition centre, initiated and founded by art collector Marianne Langen, is located on a former missile base in the midst of the lower Rhine countryside and was designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, with the aim of creating an intense connection between interior and exterior space. Viktor and Marianne’s art collection forms the basis of the Langen Foundation’s permanent collection. The Japanese collection of Viktor and Marianne Langen is among the most important collections of Japanese art outside Japan and, with its scrolls, screens and sculptures, gives a fascinating impression of the diversity of Japanese artistic creativity from the 12th to the 19th century.
Apart from the regular presentations of the various aspects and areas the exhibition programme comprises solo and themed temporary exhibitions devoted to contemporary art.
