In the wrong place at the wrong time

Böhme Collection

Until summer 2021
Current Exhibition

Under the title “The wrong place at the wrong time”, the private Museum “Art of the Lost Generation” is exhibiting works by a rediscovered generation of painters. The circa 350 paintings in this private collection tell the stories of artists whose careers were dominated by the historical circumstances of two world wars, but who are attracting new attention today. Their art was rejected at the time as “degenerate”, though this is merely proof of how their creative powers of expression went beyond what first the academies, and then the National Socialists, regarded as the norms of their time. Their exciting stylistic pluralism is reflected in this exhibition of the Böhme Collection, which presents newly found works in the spacious premises of its home in the old town of Salzburg.

The catalogue of the Collection, “We haven’t seen each other for so long”, can be purchased at the Museum and also online. To order it, please send an e-mail to
