The former Museum Biedermann in Donaueschingen, now called Museum Art.Plus, presents a comprehensive collection of contemporary art by international artists. The exhibits are a journey through art movements and types from painting to sculpture and installation. In addition to the changing exhibitions, theatre performances, performances, readings and open-air cinema also take place here.
In 1841, the Donaueschinger Museumsgesellschaft opened a museum building directly on the Brigach and surrounded by an extensive park. A short time later, during the World Wars, there were also changes in the use of the building, it served as accommodation for reservists and was finally converted into a cinema in the 1930s.
The museum housed a cinema until 2006, when art collector Margit Biedermann turned the first sod in 2008 to convert it into a museum. The Biedermann Museum, which opened in 2009, was further developed, renovated and expanded in the following years until it was renamed Museum Art.Plus in 2015.
