Jerke Museum

The Jerke Museum in Recklinghausen is the only museum of modern Polish art outside of Poland. The art collection consists of 600 exhibits and contains rarities from the Polish avant-garde of the 1920s and Polish modernism from 1960. Some of the exhibits have already been exhibited worldwide, including in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Werner Jerke came to Germany in 1981 from Pyskowice in Upper Silesia. He began collecting Polish art while he was still studying medicine in Bonn. The Jerke Museum, which he financed privately, not only houses his own art collection, but is also available as a project space for events.
