“A very personal approach to contemporary art”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

Just spent one morning in the actual exhibition, and was very excited, and my curiosity grew over time. My daughter Sophie (16) told me later that she could still see every single piece we had seen in front of her inner eye - I think this is the ultimate compliment. I would like to thank Erika Hoffmann and her team from my heart for making those very special experiences possible!

I loved the intimate tour in the Hoffman's beautiful home with their extensive collection of modern art. Actually it was more of a discussion of what you saw in each piece, how it made you feel, etc. It was very sensitively hung. I will definately go again, as Erika changes the exhibits each year. Very interesting and I loved the boutiques and cafes around that very central area that used to have factories and accommodation for the workers.

“Private art gallery: Sammlung Hoffman”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

This gallery is only open to the public on Saturdays. You have to book prior to showing up and although I attempted and failed to do this they still allowed me to join the English speaking tour. The guide was extremely knowledgable and friendly. The gallery is in the Hoffman residence and it takes up two floors of the building. The tour lasts for 11/2 hours. The works include those by William Kentridge, Basquiat, Ron Murek, with many German and Japanese artists as well. An extensive collection. A memorable experience

“Highlight of my trip”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

this is a real hidden gem - a private contemporary art collection that is housed in a (quasi) domestic setting, that you must book in advance. Private collections have an enjoyable way of meandering through the personal tastes of the collectors over time, and this is no different. The exhibition rotates every year, but in 2012 they had some great work from Basquiat, Warhol, Kentridge, Richter, Frank Stella and many many more besides.
You can only go on Saturdays, and must join a guided tour, but if you like contemporary art, or architecture, this is a must see. Wonderful staff too.
