Museums and Collections


The 2002 sculpture, “Large Red Sphere” by the American artist, Walter De Maria (1935 — 2013) was acquired by the Udo und Anette Brandhorst Stiftung in 2006. In October 2010 the sculpture was made accessible to the public in the Türkentor, which was newly renovated and remodelled by Sauerbruch Hutton Architects. Located between the Pinakothek der Moderne and the Museum Brandhorst, and directly opposite the Alte Pinakothek’s Klenze-Portal, the Türkentor, occupies a significant location within the Kunstareal.
