BERLIN.- The Museum Berggruen, which since 2000 has been a component of the Nationalgalerie in Berlin under the authority of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation (SPK)—will expand its programming and leadership, operate with greater curatorial autonomy, begin a renovation of public spaces by HG Merz inside its Neoclassical building designed by Friedrich August Stüler, and tour highlights from its renowned collection.
On September 10, the SPK Foundation Council accepted the Berggruen Family commitment of vision, resources, and financial support—now to include annual funding of €1 million—working together to enrich the site and its offerings in Berlin.
Nicolas Berggruen said, "The family considers it a profound responsibility to our father Heinz Berggruen to support the museum to which he entrusted his collection as a legacy. We have been doing so for years through the Friends Circle we founded, an International Council, and our international network, among other means. With the success of the recent exhibition Picasso & Les Femmes d'Alger, we have taken our cooperation with SPK to a new level, which we want to make permanent. The goal of the financial contribution we are announcing is for the Museum Berggruen to set an example for modern, creative, and future-oriented museum work while encouraging people to become involved in Berlin's culture."
