With over 42,000 works, the Brandenburg State Museum of Modern Art (BLMK) with its locations in Cottbus and Frankfurt (Oder) houses the world's most comprehensive, museum collection of art from the GDR and subsequent artistic traditions. This resource must be responsibly preserved, expanded and researched, exhibited at a high level and communicated. To this end, the collection is placed in supra-regional and international temporal, geographical, social, cultural and, above all, art-historical contexts.

The BLMK emerged in 2017 from the merger of the dkw. Kunstmuseum Dieselkraftwerk Cottbus and the Museum Junge Kunst Frankfurt (Oder). At the two locations with the total of three exhibition houses - the Dieselkraftwerk in Cottbus and the Rathaushalle and Packhof in Frankfurt (Oder) - several presentations are shown simultaneously. The exhibition program is closely linked to the collection: art from the GDR as well as East German traditional lines derived from it are shown on a par with nationally relevant and internationally set artistic positions. In addition, there is an extensive supporting program of events and museum educational activities.

The Museum Junge Kunst in Frankfurt (Oder) was founded in 1965 as the Galerie Junge Kunst of the district of Frankfurt (Oder) and has been administered by the municipality since 1990. Since the 1970s, references to art from Poland have been inscribed both in the collection and in the annual exhibition programs. Consequently, in 1991 a collection area of Polish Prints after 1945 was founded. This collection contains an excellent cross-section of the artistic work of Polish artists up to the present day.

The exhibition programs of the two locations are not identical, but follow the same logic. From the understanding of the collection holdings as a resource, the activities of the BLMK aim at art-historical contextualization, critical examination of their own genesis as well as their contents.

The hall of the historic town hall is located in the former center of the once underpinned medieval city. In this building, which is one of the most beautiful brick buildings in the city, the Galerie Junge Kunst was founded on October 2, 1965. Originally used for market and trade purposes, the two-nave hall had a beam ceiling, which was replaced by a cross vault in 1609. This vault shape characterizes the space, which is divided by seven sandstone columns.

The museum's second exhibition venue in Frankfurt (Oder) is located in the nearby Packhof at Carl-Philipp-Emanuel-Bach-Strasse 11.
