This private collection of contemporary art by Karen and Christian Boros is located in a former World War Two bunker crowned by a penthouse in the style of Mies van der Rohe, where the couple also lives.
The bunker includes some of the most spectacular and sophisticated works of contemporary art: sculptures, paintings, video installations, and photographs by artists as diverse as Ai Weiwei, Olafur Eliasson, Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, Alicia Kwade, Elisabeth Peyton, Thomas Ruff, Thomás Sareceno, Santiago Sierra and, Wolfgang Tillmans, as well as many others.
Most of the artists created their exhibited works especially for the unique ambience of this bunker. Thus, the Boros bunker can pass for a Gesamtkunstwerk – or total work of art.
