The Werner-Berg-Museum offers a representative overview of the lifetime work of the artist Werner Berg (1904-1981), born in Wuppertal Elberfeld, later settling down on Rutar’s farm in Lower Carinthia in 1931, in order to spend more time with his family as a farmer and artist. His work, with its roots in German expressionism, serves as a unique documentation of the place of his residence in Lower Carinthia. The museum is housed in a centuries old building at the Main Market in Bleiburg (Hauptplatz), whose expressively revitalised basic structure provides for the perfect placement of his works of art. A very successful symbiosis between the modern stylistic elements and the historic structure of the building itself makes a visit to the museum a very special architectural experience.
