Housed in a former railway station, the Hamburger Bahnhof is the third location of Berlin's Nationalgalerie. Following extensive renovations the museum was opened in 1996 with a focus on art since 1960. The museum is distinguished by its holdings of seminal 20th Century artists including John Cage, Bill Viola, Peter Campus, Wolf Vostell, Rebecca Horn, Carolee Schneeman, Reinhard Mucha, Marcel Broodthaers, Fritz Rahmann, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Johan Grimonprez and Aernout Mik.
In 2002, the collection was enlarged significantly by the acquisition of Egidio Marzona's study collection of Conceptual Art and Arte Povera. It is also home to the Joseph Beuys Media Archive. In 2004 the museum was further extended to house the Friedrich Christian Flick collection of contemporary art which includes a large and virtually unique collection of works by Bruce Nauman. The collection is also renowned for its holdings of German painting including works by influential artists such as Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Georg Baselitz and also younger painters including, Neo Rauch, Daniel Richter and Belgian artist Luc Tuymans.
