The essence of an active collection is that it grows and in the best case finds no end. So we are happy about new additions from the past two years from a variety of disciplines: photography, drawing, collage, painting, printmaking.

The stubborn thing about empty spaces is that, strictly speaking, they are never really empty. And that is fortunate. But the contents of a room are not always well-placed or beautiful to look at, or even arranged in a functionally sensible way. Our showroom, too, is always changing in its function and sight: from carefully arranged exhibition, to construction site, to hopeless chaos and temporary depot, to bustling studio. A look behind the scenes of art and cultural production. 

06.08. – 25.09.2022

Michel Douay, Gerhard Haderer, Rudi Hurzlmeier, Janosch, Siegfried Kaden, Erik Liebermann, Werner Nydegger, Friedrich Streich, Moritz von Wolzogen

Comic artists and caricaturists are true masters of their craft. In times of a supposed decline in craftsmanship, they celebrate the art of drawing in versatile styles and varied humor. The collection includes original drawings from the filmcartoon production of Pink Panther, to Janosch, to contemporary comic artists such as Moritz von Wolzogen.

11.06. – 30.07.2022

Gerlinde Beck, Joseph Beuys, John Bock, Lisa Brice, Genevieve Claisse, Jens Cords, Otto Herbet Hajek, Anatol Herzfeld, Julio LeParc, Robert Rauschenberg, Wolf Vostell

Since its emergence in the past 110 years, the technique and art form of collage has conquered like no other the most diverse art forms: starting from the pictorial composition of material and image cut-outs glued together, material, object, text, sound, and film collages are still being created today and have also seamlessly made the transition from analog to digital. We begin with a compilation of analog works from half a century.

16.04. – 04.06.2022

Till Gerhard, Ursula Hirsch, Volker Leonhard, Bernhard Martin, Nigel Mullins, Georg Karl Pfahler, Johanna Piesniewski, Heinrich Siepmann, Tim Trantenroth, Ben Willikens, Herbert Zangs

Painting, as one of the oldest art forms, lost its documentary depiction function at the beginning of the 20th century and has since undergone a wide variety of developments in terms of subject matter, technique, etc. The collection focuses on abstraction and brings together a cross-section of works by artists who use the medium of painting to create very different representations. 

19.02. – 09.04.2022

Donald Judd, Walter Leblanc, Julio LeParc, Richard Lindner, Adolf Luther, Heinz Mack, Agnes Martin, Christian Megert, Marcello Morandini, Werner Nöfer, Robert Rauschenberg, Victor Vasarely, Andy Warhol, Ludwig Wilding

The 1960s are considered to be the years with the highest birth rates in the west. This could also be applied to art, because this period is characterized like no other by the emergence and simultaneity of many art and style trends that could hardly have been more different and are rarely shown together because of their contrasts.

18.12.2021 – 07.02.2022

Antonio Asis, Bernd + Hilla Becher, Gerlinde Beck, Joseph Beuys, Alfred Ehrhardt, Douglas Gordon, Jeff Koons, Hans Kotter, Markus Lüpertz, Agnes Martin, Rune Mields, Véra Molnar, Julia Olivier, Robert Rauschenberg, Antoni Tapies, Rosemarie Trockel, Günther Uecker, Timm Ullrichs, Bill Viola, Jorinde Voigt, Wolf Vostell, Andy Warhol, Annett Zinsmeister

It is the art of the 20th and 21st centuries that has shaped us and accompanies us. How can most diverse works from 100 years be condensed into a chord on one wall or in one room? This is the central question of a collection for which there are many answers. This exhibition series is an experiment in search of polyphonic harmony.

“In the multiple, the question of the original […] is shifted and condensed into paradoxes, […] as »multiplied original works« (Daniel Spoerri), […] as »multicates« (Peter Weibel), […] as »originals in series«  (Karl Gerstner) [… ]”. Claus Pias´ description already suggests how exciting and versatile the concept of the multiple can be to balance the contradiction between serial production and original. The selected objects show very different approaches and refer in this breadth to the conceptual diversity that could and can arise with the idea of the multiple.

We love art! Art determines and enriches our lives, as artists, as teachers, as collectors. Accordingly, our new additions are diverse: donations, purchases, exchanges… and: Paintings, drawings, objects, photography…. and in this case also as an exhibition a novelty and different: namely simply without a theme.
