Museo Vostell Malpartida

The Vostell Malpartida Museum was founded in October 1976 by Wolf Vostell (Leverkusen 1932- Berlin, 1998), a Spanish-German artist of recognized international prestige, a fundamental figure in contemporary post-war art, a person closely linked to Extremadura since his marriage to Mercedes Guardado Olivenza.

The Vostell Malpartida Museum offers visitors three collections of contemporary art: Wolf and Mercedes Vostell Collection, Fluxus Collection-Gino Di Maggio Donation and Collection of Conceptual Artists.

In addition to the exhibition rooms, you can also visit the Interpretation Center of the Cattle Tracks and History of the Lanas Wash. The museum extends into the landscape of the Barruecos with two sculpture-environments, both installed between the rocks: ‘V.O.A.E.X. (H) ormigón’s journey through Alta Extremadura ‘(1976), with which the activity of the Vostell Malpartida Museum began, and’ The Dead Who Thirst ‘(1978). It is currently one of the most important avant-garde European museums and has become an obligatory forum within the national and international art scene.
