MdbK [next;raum]

The MdbK [next;raum] on the 2nd floor is a place for dialogue, which has so far remained underrepresented in the museum's collections. In exchange with interested parties from Leipzig, focal points have been set in recent months. The theme and the exhibition design changes every six months. The first [next;raum] deals with the visibility of women* and gender.


Would you like to enjoy a piece of cake, a good coffee or something savoury? Then the CAFÉ TREFF is exactly the right spot for you. The café at the MdbK is open for your visit. Opening hours: Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday: 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Wednesday 12 p.m.-8 p.m., Monday closed.


At MZIN you will find everything your heart desires and round off your visit to the MdbK: Catalogues, artists editions, magazines and merchandise. For more information, visit, Facebook and Instagram.


Since the end of the 1990s, so-called provenance research has been an important topic at the MdbK. From the end of 2015 until October 2020, the Magdeburg-based German Centre for the Loss of Cultural Property funded a provenance office at the MdbK with two successive funding projects, thus giving this field of activity new impetus.
