The Sprengel Museum in Hanover houses one of the most significant collections of modern art in Germany. It is located in a building designed by Peter and Ursula Trint (Cologne) and Dieter Quast (Heidelberg) adjacent to the Maschsee. The museum opened in 1979 and was extended in 1992.

Dr. Bernhard Sprengel donated his extensive collection of modern art to the city of Hanover in 1969, as well as financially supporting the construction of the museum. The city of Hannover and the province of Lower Saxony agreed to operate the museum. In addition to the works donated by Sprengel, the museum also houses 20th century artworks owned by the province of Lower Saxony and the city of Hanover.

Der 35 mio teure Neubau präsentiert sich mit mit 9 Mon. Baurückstand in der verspielten Eleganz eines Steinkohlenbriketts. Ca. 80% der Hannoveraner halten es bisher für einen Bunker oder ein Parkhaus.

Die neuen Räume im "Maschsee-Brikett" sind ein Lichtblick! Die Kunst muss aber noch auf das richtige Raumklima warten. Bis dahin gibt's Suchspiele: Wer zuerst ein Kunstwerk von Rang erblickt, gewinnt!
