Young artists dominate the program of the Mosel and Tschechow Gallery, with works in the fields of photography, sculpture, object art, painting, drawing, film and video. In short, whatever is currently being produced by younger generation artists. The emphasis, though, is on something very particular, namely works with a narrative structure. Many of the artists involved work not only as figurative artists, but are also active as writers.
This 18th century building is one of the few remaining old houses in the district of Haidhausen. With just one floor, it is one of the characteristic shelters or early freehold flats, called 'Herbergen' in southern Germany. They were once very popular in this poor proletarian quarter, and functioned as homes for local workers. In recent years, the area has become very trendy and the houses are now for the wealthy rather than the poor! This particular house shows numerous exhibits detailing life in the Herbergen centuries ago. Temporary exhibitions are also arranged. Admission is free. Check website for exact timings.
Here you will find Munich adult education classes (VHS) put on temporary exhibitions in the foyers of the Cultural Centre Gasteig.

Admission is free.
This huge air-raid shelter, built in 1942, was used by the military in the decades after the War (as a wine cellar!), before it was sold to the consultant Wolfgang Tumulka in 1992. Tumulka proceeded to turn the bunker into a contemporary art gallery, filled with multimedia and abstract works, which are particularly well suited to the somewhat gloomy rooms. An interesting place for browsing through equally engaging works of art.

Artists represented include John Chamberlain, Jon Groom, Alf Lechner, Hermann Nitsch, Hubertus Reichert and Troels Wörsel.
