the admission ticket will include: a self-service Tequila bar, exotic fruits juices buffet and a special slides presentation showing “The making of the Museum”.
The slide show will present photos from 2008 and 2009, and show how the old factory building was renovated to host the museum and the exhibition, and how the 600 sqm factory building was transformed in the Casa Azul (The Blue House, the family house of Frida Kahlo in Mexico City).

Since January 2011 the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund is member of the ICOM (International Council Of Museums), and as such is committed to the code of ethics of the international council.

The Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund is a privately owned monographic art museum founded in 2008. The museum is member of the ICOM.
The Kunstmuseum exhibits only the works of Frida Kahlo. The objective of the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund is to offer the visitors a complete view of the entire work of the Mexican artist, thus allowing to follow Kahlo’s development, to discover the different phases she goes through in her life: from the very early works to her maturity.

The Vision of the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund is to offer the visitors a unique cultural experience that covers all the senses, and an environment that touches not only the eyes of the visitors, but their minds, and above all their hearts.

Every decision made in the creation of the museum was driven by two elements:
respect for the visitors and respect for the artists.
In addition to exhibit the artworks, the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund shows the environment of Frida Kahlo’s life: Tehuana Huipiles (blouses), jewelry, and the entire context in which the artist lived and produced her paintings. This 360°view of Kahlo’s llife and work allows the visitors to totally immerse themselves into the artworks and to better understand the artist.

The founders of the Art Museum are Hans-Jürgen Gehrke and Dr. Mariella C. Remund. Both are art patrons, collectors, and passionate art historians.

They have spent over 25 years in executive positions in multinational corporations and academic organizations in Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland, USA, Spain, South America and China.
