BERLIN, GERMANY, 15 November 2019 – Yesterday, the budget committee of the German Bundestag approved the budget for the planned Museum of the 20th Century of the National Gallery on the “Kulturforum” square in Berlin. The now secured financing has cleared the last hurdle before the start of construction. The ground-breaking ceremony will take place on December 3.
The new building is to house the National Gallery’s collections of 20th-century art in the future. They are among the most important in the world – but so far only a small part of them can be seen because there is no exhibition space for many of the works.
