About the Exhibition:

The Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW) has been a partner of the ZKM | Karlsruhe for many years. As an expansion of this partnership, the Collection Landesbank Baden-Württemberg has, additionally, collaborated with the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art since 2005. In the context of this cooperation, the collection will be honored with a major exhibition on the ground floor of the museum.

With a focus on contemporary German art since the early 1980s, the exhibition will show primarily the collection’s latest developments. In this, very spezial consideration is given to continually expanding or, in part, also entirely newly acquired work groups from seminal contemporary artists rather than to outstanding individual acquisitions. For this reason, the exhibition does not make the claim of offering a representative overview of the collection, but rather, allows a closer look at the collection’s more recent history.

Positions of meanwhile internationally renowned artists such as Franz Ackermann, Thomas Demand, Georg Herold, Christian Jankowski, Martin Kippenberger, Michel Majerus, Albert Oehlen, Tobias Rehberger, and Wolfgang Tillmanns, along with those of more controversially discussed artists, such as André Butzer, Josephine Meckseper, Julika Rudelius, Corinne Wasmuht, and Ina Weber form important focuses within the collection’s broad spectrum.

Curated by Lutz Casper and Gregor Jansen.
In collaboration with Andreas Beitin and Isabel Meixner.
