Tobias Hoffmann (* 1970 in Munich ) is a German art historian , curator and, since 2013, director of the Bröhan Museum in Berlin.

Tobias Hoffmann studied art history and philosophy at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich and received his doctorate in 2007 with a dissertation on Willi Baumeister’s work “The Unknown in Art” at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart.

After graduating, he first worked as a research assistant at the Neue Sammlung in Munich, then at the Museum for Concrete Art in Ingolstadt, which he headed from 2002 to 2012. During this time he realized numerous exhibitions on concrete art and design of the 20th century. In 2013 he was appointed director of the Bröhan Museum.

Since then, he has modernized the museum’s program and opened it up to exhibitions that combine the historical collection of Art Nouveau , Art Deco and paintings from the Berlin Secession with topics from art and design up to the present day. Exhibitions such as “Schrill Bizarr Brachial. New German Design of the 80s” (2014), “Do It Yourself Design” (2016) and “Kuss. From Rodin to Bob Dylan” (2017) are a result of this reorientation.
