The Art Stories examine original artworks in light of their historical context. They tell the story of these works from different perspectives and illustrate that there is more than just a single perspective. Quotes from the artist, the opinions of their contemporaries, and the views of art historians are addressed along with questions we ask today. To start off, the museum is showing six Art Stories with works by artists such as Max Liebermann (1847–1935), Auguste Rodin (1840­–1917), Edvard Munch (1863–1944), Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944), and Andy Warhol (1928–1987).
