The DASMAXIMUM museum now displays world-class contemporary art on a good 4,300 m². The rooms are presented to visitors in daylight-flooded order. But what happens when the museum is not open? When Dan Flavin's fluorescent tubes burn out or a sculpture weighing tons has to be moved? How does a 10-metre-wide Andy Warhol painting from New York get into the Traunreut exhibition rooms, and who cleans the delicate surfaces? What has to be considered in the framing, and who determines the arrangement? Where do the signatures hide when they are not visible on the picture surface, and what do they look like? Who do the works of art belong to, how are their values determined, and why did they come to Traunreut in the first place? The tour with the museum director answers questions like these and sheds light on the daily work of the museum team behind the scenes.
