Dieter Roth Museum

Dieter Roth ( 1930-1998 ) established the DIETER ROTH MUSEUM in a townhouse in Hamburg on 57 Abteistrasse. From the beginning, the Museum was solely devoted to showing the works of Dieter Roth and his collaborations with other artists. Dieter Roth selected each individual piece in the museum and used its mode of representation and its significance to the different creative stages of his work as criteria.
