BMW Art Cars @ Pinakothek der Moderne
The artists from the USA and South Africa created a fascinating symbiosis of technology, design and motorsport in cooperation with BMW. As a long-time sponsor of the Pinakotheken, the cars can now be seen in the museum - the M1 Andy Warhol is even parked in front of the door. The visit is worthwhile for all art and car enthusiasts from 0-99!
On the initiative of the French racing driver and art lover Hervé Poulain and in close collaboration with the then BMW Motorsport Director Jochen Neerpasch, the artist Alexander Calder was asked in 1975 to design Poulain's BMW racing car. Since then, artists from all over the world have followed and designed BMW automobiles of their time.
