Since the opening of the Pinakothek der Moderne in 2002, the PIN. Party has developed into one of the most important instruments for supporting and financially securing the Pinakothek der Moderne and the Museum Brandhorst. The record proceeds from last year went to the realization of purchase requests, exhibitions and mediation projects of the four museums under the roof of the Pinakothek der Moderne and the Museum Brandhorst. 


If we look at the coming year from today's perspective, the wish list for the collections is long again. These include, for example, videos by Mario Pfeifer and Alexandra Ranner, early drawings by Barbara Hammer and a carbon bicycle by Ross Lovegrove. We would like to fulfill these wishes and help to collect the modern and document it in museums.


Mediation will also play an important role again in the coming year. For 2020/21 we hope for continuity of existing projects. For many years, this has included the popular PIN.OCCHIO program for after-school children from non-art backgrounds, the Sommerferienprogramm and the every Sunday offer Kinder können Kunst. Formats such as Kunstauskunft or Kunst und Spiele (2-5 years) and upcoming projects with the DesignBuild Pavilion, which was co-financed by PIN., will present us with new tasks next year. We would like to contribute that many people of all generations have good experiences with this temporary place, which shall replace what could not be built yet: A place to talk about architecture, design, graphics and art.


The most important projects for the current and the coming year include groundbreaking exhibitions. For some of them PIN. has already promised support. This includes "Max Beckmann/Omer Fast Abfahrt" at the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, „Die Architekturmaschine. Die Rolle des Computers in der Architektur“ at the Architecture Museum of the Technical University of Munich, as well as „KI. Robotik. Design“ at the Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum. The projects that are being promoted in 2021 include the exhibitions “Contemporary Art in Global Dialogue” and “Emil Nolde. My way of painting” at the Modern Art Collection, the solo exhibition by artist Alexandra Bircken at the Brandhorst Museum and the socio-critical exhibition on the subject of homelessness “Who's next ”at the Architecture Museum of the Technical University of Munich. The trilogy begun in 2020, which juxtaposes substantial works by Max Beckmann from the holdings of the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung with contemporary artists, will be continued in 2021 with "Max Beckmann / Friederike Feldmann".
