Kirchner Museum Davos

The Kirchner Museum Davos offers visitors an extraordinary opportunity to experience works of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner in the very place they were created. Davos and its environs inspired him to produce a large number of major works. The Kirchner Museum continually presents varied ensembles of key works from its extensive collection. In addition, it stages temporary exhibitions that highlight either particular aspects of the work of Kirchner and other major artists of the classical Modern period or currents in contemporary art.

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner was definitely not a big traveller. Because of this, Kirchner had to count on people to take the journey to him in Davos. The exhibition focuses on these visitors. Kirchner made it a ritual to photograph his visitors in front of a window of his “Wildboden” residence, subsequently creating numerous portraits in a wide range of techniques. The presentation includes works from all creative periods with a focus on the Davos years.
