Established in Hagen in 1902 as the successor to the Folkwang
Museum, the Osthaus Museum Hagen consciously deals with
contemporary art in the tradition which is today called “Hagener
Impuls”. In the Henry van de Velde art nouveau rooms, classic modern
works including those by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Alexej von Jawlensky
and Lyonel Feininger are displayed. This is supplemented by a diverse
programme of changing special exhibitions as well as an active art
education in the “Junges Museum” (young museum).
