The Departemental Museum of Contemporary Art

Overlooking the valley of the rivers Graine and Vayres, Rochechouart castle has housed the Departmental Museum of Contemporary Art since 1985. Landscape, history and the imagination are three of the major themes at the forefront of the museum’s collection.
In a remarkable 15th century building, by linking heritage and creation, a collection of refined contemporary art has been established, together with works that are more specific to the surroundings. In 1989, the founding of the Raoul Hausmann collection (over 600 works and a large set of archives) has enabled the Museum to be one of the leading research centres for this famous Dadaist.
To appreciate the wealth of the Museum, regular events are programmed. The Visitors Department organises visits and workshops for both children and adults as well as arranging events such as conferences and film shows at Rochechouart or in the surrounding area.
