The Museum Berggruen of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin will significantly expand its programme and be afforded greater independence to do so. To make this possible, the Berggruen family will provide the museum with one million euros per year after the completion of the refurbishments, which is slated for 2025.

Under the direction of the current curator Gabriel Montua, the expanded programme will include additional exhibitions, supplementary accompanying programmes and more intensive collaborations with museums and collectors within Germany and abroad, in order to be able to continually provide visitors with new and enticing offers. To make this possible, the Berggruen family will provide the museum with one million euros per year after the completion of the current refurbishment work, which is slated for 2025. The family – represented by Nicolas and Olivier Berggruen – and the Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz have agreed on this after talks with the Chair of the SPK’s Foundation Board and Minister Monika Grütters, along with the President of the SPK, Hermann Parzinger.
