Extended. Landesbank Baden-Württemberg Collection
21 May - 18 Oct 2009
In spring 2009, the collection of the Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW), which has been a partner of the ZKM, and also, since 2005, a cooperation partner of the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art, will be honored with a major exhibition on the museum’s ground floor. Ten years after the last comprehensive collection presentation Zoom, this will be the first major museum show in which a large part of the Landesbank Baden-Württemberg collection is made available to the public. The collection has focused on contemporary German art since the early 1980s. Against this backdrop, the exhibition will show mainly the collection’s most recent developments. Not only are exceptional individual acquisitions from recent years included, but also, special consideration will be given to major work blocks of seminal contemporary artists, which have been continually expanded during this time or, in part, put together entirely new. Meanwhile internationally renowned positions by artists such as Franz Ackermann, Thomas Demand, Georg Herold, Martin Kippenberger, Michel Majerus, Albert Oehlen, Tobias Rehberger, and Wolfgang Tillmans build an important focus within the collection’s broad spectrum, alongside more controversially discussed artists, such as André Butzer, Josephine Meckseper, Corinne Wasmuht, and Ina Weber.
A catalogue will be published to accompany the exhibition.
