The Berlin Kupferstichkabinett at Kulturforum is a major museum with an exclusive focus on prints and drawings, one of the relatively few print rooms to exist as a separate institution (rather than as part of a larger museum or library).

The museum contains over 500,000 prints and some 110,000 drawings, watercolours, pastels and oil sketches, including works by artists ranging from Sandro Botticelli and Albrecht Dürer to Rembrandt and Adolph von Menzel up to Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol.

Other works include Mantegna, Altdorfer and Grünewald, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, Tiepolo and Chodowiecki, Caspar David Friedrich, Schinkel, Munch, Kirchner, Giacometti, Pop Art, (Hamilton, Warhol, Johns, Stella)

In recent years it has purchased works from such artists as Olafur Eliasson, Raymond Pettibon, Julie Mehretu, Franz Ackermann, Dieter Roth, John Armleder and Damien Hirst.
