The Pinakothek der Moderne not only brings together four museums under one roof – Sammlung Moderne Kunst, Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München, Technische Universität Architecture Museum and Neue Sammlung – it's also part of an even larger group of museums: the Munich Art Quarter, which in addition to the Pinakothek der Moderne includes the Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Museum Brandhorst, Antikensammlungen, Glyptothek and Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus.
All modern art movements are represented in the Sammlung Moderne Kunst, for instance Expressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, New Objectivity, Bauhaus, Surrealism, Pop Art and Minimal Art. Works by Henri Matisse, Oskar Kokoschka, Max Beckmann, Pablo Picasso, Otto Dix, Lyonel Feininger, Joan Miró, René Magritte, Salvador Dalí and others are on display, as are examples by Brücke and Blue Rider artists. The Staatliche Graphische Sammlung has approx. 400,000 items covering every development in the history of drawing and prints, whilst the collection at the Technische Universität Architecture Museum, the faculty's collective memory, runs to around 500,000 drawings and plans by almost 700 architects, over 100,000 photographers, as well as mock-ups and archives – from Balthasar Neumann to Le Corbusier, and from Leo von Klenze to Peter Zumthor. Founded around a century ago, the Neue Sammlung is the world's oldest design museum. The approx. 80,000 objects in the industrial design, applied art and graphic design departments together make up the biggest design collection in the world.
