Full description
The Feuerle Collection combines international contemporary artists with Imperial Chinese furniture and ancient Southeast Asian art. Located in a former Second World War bunker - renovated by the British architect John Pawson - the museum encourages a conversation between different periods and cultures. As you explore the collections, gain a new perspective on the ancient and contemporary works surrounding by impressive architecture and sophisticated light design which will stimulate all senses.  Meet your expert guide and begin your walk through the collections. Marvel at stone, bronze, and wood Khmer sculptures from the 7th to the 13th century, Imperial Chinese lacquer and stone furniture. In addition, find wood and stone Chinese Scholar furniture from the Han Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty dating from 200 BC to the 18th century. They are complemented by works by contemporary artists, including Cristina Iglesias, Anish Kapoor, Zeng Fanzhi, James Lee Byars, Nobuyoshi Araki, and Adam Fuss. Discover why these pieces have all been chosen and collected by the museum’s founder Désiré Feuerle - a connoisseur of Asian art who was a pioneer in juxtaposing antiquities with contemporary art through a series of ground-breaking exhibitions in the 1990s. The first Silk Room exhibition is also accessible until 8 April 2022 on the upper ground floor of the collection. The silk Room has focus on a selection of recent works by British artist and author Edmund de Waal, juxtaposed with unseen pieces from the collection. ”The idea behind this exhibition is to juxtapose the poetic content of Edmund de Waal’s work and the timeless character of extraordinary Asian achievements from the 6th and 16th century. De Waal is a contemporary artist, but his soul I see in Rembrandt, in the beauty of Italian Renaissance painters, and in historic philosophy. De Waal is a storyteller, who transports you to dark grounds, but also into the beauty of light. For that reason, de Waal’s waves can be found both in ancient Asian art, and in the great achievements of European masters of Wunderkammern, as if these were seen through the eye of a Morandi. de Waal creates magic imaginary boxes which contain beauty in the eyes of the spectator. Most people would see him linked to porcelain, but I think his creations using porcelain go much further and beyond the feeling porcelain creates in our eyes“. (Désiré Feuerle) We thank the Studio Edmund de Waal and Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin

A little quirky but very interesting art in an unusual setting, perfectly put into scene. Great ideas to present sculptures - mostly Cambodian figures - and pieces of furniture but be prepared to lock phones and belongings into a locker, stand in the nearly total dark for the first 5 minutes listening to „music“ (or sounds) adapting to the darkness. Afterwards everything was perfectly illuminated and we enjoyed the hour of art sensually perceived. And, yes, there are also several pieces of erotic art photos showing Asian women! Definitely different and very worth it!

Great immersive experience, beautiful location. very impressive. The guides English was insufficient, it was difficult to understand him. The information provided prior to the tour was also insufficient and it would be good to get some insights during the tour.
