The front block of the museum building dates back to 1887. It features an elegant neo-Palladian design, a European style of architecture characterised by a highly symmetrical façade and the use of pediments above windows.
This exhibition presents Germany’s highly innovative cinematic art of animation which has evolved beyond the territory of family entertainment. It showcases the markedly individual styles of some of the best award-winning German film animators such as Gil Alkabetz, Daniel Nocke and Thomas Voigt, and ranges from classic animation techniques to cutting-edge computer technology.
The combination of screenings and the exhibition of artistic materials, drawings and models reveal how animated films are created and how this inventive cinematic art draws its inspiration from a panorama of private myths, of world angst, criticism of the age and of politics and art.
