The house was one of the first exhibition houses in Germany to show international contemporary art after 1945. Pablo Picasso was shown here as early as 1949, Oskar Schlemmer and Georges Rouault the following year, and Henry Moore and Max Ernst in 1951.

To this day, the Haus am Waldsee presents central positions of contemporary art, especially innovative approaches to artistic practice. The spectrum ranges from the visual arts to design and architecture to performative positions. Particular emphasis is placed on a variety of mediation formats. Audio guides lead to outstanding examples of modernist architecture in the immediate vicinity of the house.

The program reflects the lived realities of the former residential building. Before it was used as an exhibition house, "Haus Knobloch," built in 1922, was a factory owner's villa. It included an English-style landscape park, which later became a sculpture park. In the restored park, which will reopen in 2022, art and nature will henceforth act as equal actors.
