PEAC Museum

A vibrant exhibition venue for contemporary art in Freiburg

As early as 1997, visitors interested in art were able to visit the first exhibitions of contemporary art at the headquarters of the Alexander Bürkle electrical wholesale and technology service provider, which is run by the third generation of the Ege family, in the industrial area of northern Freiburg. The exhibition rooms, which opened in 2004 on the company premises under the name “Kunstraum Alexander Bürkle”, extend over 1,000 square meters and have made a professional museum presentation of the Paul Ege Art Collection possible. The collections are shown in varying configurations in two to three thematic group exhibitions per year. Artists whose work is particularly representative of the collection are regularly presented in concentrated form in monographic solo exhibitions.

Welcome to PEAC

In keeping with the collection’s name, Paul Ege Art Collection (abbreviation: PEAC), the place where the art collection is preserved, displayed, and communicated has been called PEAC Museum since September 2019. Here, art lovers can encounter internationally renowned contemporary art through a variety of mediation formats in the nine bright, serene halls. Whether it’s in one of the regularly scheduled overview tours, in concentrated form in front of a single work—the “favorite of the month”, through an in-depth lecture, in the context of a workshop that stimulates the participants’ creative skills, during an aperitif riche with friends or business partners, or finally in an individual tour of our rooms—we warmly invite you to visit! PEAC Museum sees itself as a lively place of cultural education and exchange, where art is conveyed in a vivid, hands-on and experiential way.

The PEAC Museum is open to the public on the following days:

Tuesday–Friday from 11 a.m.–5 p.m.

Sundays and holidays from 11 a.m.–5 p.m.

Admission is free.

From Albers to Zoderer—the PEAC Library

In parallel to the development of the collection, the library housed in the rooms of PEAC Museum has grown to approximately 6000 titles dedicated to modern and contemporary art. These mainly comprise monographs on artists, but also exhibition catalogs and specialist publications. The volumes are available in the reference library during the museum’s opening hours. The Ege Kunst- und Kulturstiftung is working on the cataloguing of the holdings. We are already happy to provide information relating to search inquiries.
