The RITTER MUSEUM – Art in a square.
The Marli Hoppe-Ritter Collection
A visit to the RITTER MUSEUM will lead to the discovery that a square can also be a visual treat. The building was designed by Swiss architect Max Dudler and is situated – like the RITTER SPORT SCHOKOLADEN – directly next to the chocolate factory. Since 2005 it has been home to RITTER SPORT co-owner Marli Hoppe-Ritter’s collection of constructive and concrete art.
Contentwise, the 20th and 21st century art works focus on ‘the square’ and illustrate the history of constructive abstract art from its beginnings around 1915, to the present. Notable exponents of geometrical abstraction such as Joseph Albers, Max Bill, Imi Knoebel, Vera Molnar, Aurélie Nemours, Günter Umberg and Victor Vasarély are represented, among others, in the collection of works. Regularly-changing exhibitions of collections, special exhibitions and a diverse art education and events programme for children and adults make the RITTER MUSEUM a lively place to encounter art.
