2013 Exhibitions: Jordaens and the Antique (March 1 - June 16)
The Fridericianum was built in 1779, making it one of the oldest public museums in Europe. It is famously host to the quintennial Documenta art festival—a highly celebrated exhibition of international contemporary art. Designed by architect Simon Louis du Ry, the museum once held antiques, weaponry, and works from Hessian landgraves. After massive damages from World War II, it became a space for temporary exhibitions, most of which are modern and contemporary in era.
