The Brücke-Museum, with David Bowie and Iggy Pop in mind

As the only museum in the world dedicated to the Brücke movement, it houses unique collections.

A hall of fame or the Expressionist movement founded in 1967 and initiated by painter, engraver and plastic artist Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, the Brücke-Museum is located only five minutes away by foot from the Pücklerstraße bus station. Bordering on Grünewald forest, this museum offers major art by key expressionist artists of the Die Brücke movement, created in Dresde in 1905. Karl Schmidt-Rottluff himself, as well as Max Pechstein, Ernst-Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Emil Nolde and Otto Mueller have all demonstrated how Germany in the early 20th century was leading the avant-garde on an international level.

All along the museum's clear-looking rooms, you will be dazzled by the bold colours splashing everywhere. Among the various pieces exhibited, you will find Erich Heckel's Roquairol (1917), worth the visit in itself and an inspiration source for Iggy Pop's 1977 The Idiot, coproduced and co-written by David Bowie, as well as Bowie's own Heroes (also from 1977).
