From the beginning of 2011 the Falckenberg Collection belongs to the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, one of Europe’s largest exhibition centers for contemporary art and photography.
In 2007 Harald Falckenberg acquired one of the buildings and converted it into a spacious exhibition hall for his collection with the help of Berlin-based architect, Roger Bundschuh.
From the beginning of 2011 the Falckenberg Collection belongs to the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, one of Europe’s largest exhibition centers for contemporary art and photography.
