Ms. Goetz’s museum, which was designed by the architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron, has works by Isa Genzken, Andreas Gursky, Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman and Mike Kelley. Many of the donated works are videos.

Bloomberg quotes The Muenchner Merkur, a Bavarian newspaper, as estimating the gift at around 30 million euros, or $40 million.
