Museum of Concrete Art

Composition of advance and tradition Ingolstadt’s Museum of Concrete Art is Germany’s only museum specialised exclusively in Concrete Art. Its 1000 sq. exhibition area and the neighbouring sculpture garden feature works by this art movement’s most significant proponents dating back to its beginnings. Bought by the city of Ingolstadt in 1981, the Gomringer collection is the museum’s core exhibit. To supplement it, more objects have since been bought and borrowed. In 1992, the museum opened in a former barracks building erected in the 18th century and refurbished in an award-winning project. The collection comprises the works of Josef Albers, Max Bill, Richard Paul Lohse, Victor Vasarely, François Morellet and Jesus Rafael Soto, among others. Alongside its extensive collection, the Museum of Concrete Art regularly shows changing exhibitions. They showcase the full gamut of Concrete Art, as well as developments in design related to concrete art by virtue of their formative principles.

Lechner Museum

The successful result of a joint effort of the Alf Lechner foundation and the city of Ingolstadt, the Lechner Museum opened its doors in 2000. Preserving the building’s industrial structure the former Audi AG workshop was transformed into a functional museum flooded with light. Its streamlined simplicity is in perfect harmony with Lechner’s artistic principles. Time and again, changing exhibitions highlight new facets of the distinguished steel sculptor’s work. Alongside diverse sculptural works, individual exhibitions also showcase the sculptor’s sketches and autonomous graphical artworks. Alf Lechner attaches great value to engaging other artists in a dialogue. Regularly he invites fellow artists to take part in a joint exhibition project.

Asam's Maria de Victoria Church

The baroque jewel lacking a forecourt and towers, the baroque church of Maria de Victoria is sited somewhat secluded in the Old Town, but a look into its interior reveals its full glory. Two precious art treasures adorn this jewel, built from 1732 to 1736 as an oratorio of the Marian student congregation. Painted by Bavaria’s most celebrated baroque artist Cosmas

Damian Asam, at the height of his powers, the fresco’s theme is the Lord’s incarnation. Measuring 42 x 16 m, it is the world’s largest fresco on a flat ceiling. The best way to appreciate this masterly achievement in perspective is to walk around the auditorium. The Lepanto Monstrance Another treasure, the Lepanto Monstrance was finished in 1708. The filigree work of art in gold and silver graces the treasury. Portraying the Christians’ naval victory over the Turks at Lepanto, it is a unique battle representation on the world’s most valuable monstrance.
