Campusmuseum. art collection
The university museum, with its high-class collection of modern and
contemporary art from Europe and the USA, is unique in Germany. The
Ruhr University Bochum gained the base stock of its modern collection
from a donation by Albert Schulze Vellinghausen with works in the
fields of Informel and Action Painting, as well as post-war concrete art.
The museum was opened in 1975 on the university campus and
presents modern art in dialogue with ancient art. It is a venue for
collection presentations and temporary exhibitions, workshops,
conferences, lectures, talks by artists and university events.
