Art of the contemporary in every medium and genre: This is the main focus which lies upon the activities of the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Siegen. In regard to promote art, the conceptual photographic work of the Siegen born Bernd Becher and his wife Hilla is the somehow locally founded starting point. The manifold interrelations between the contemporary and the past are also aspects of the museum’s work. Furthermore the museum displays a private collection (Sammlung Lambrecht-Schadeberg) of selected masterpieces by the past winning artists of the Rubens Prize. The award of the city of Siegen is held since 1955 and was for instance awarded to Francis Bacon or Sigmar Polke.
