The exhibition presents works from the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection, by artists Andy Warhol, Robert Longo, Sylvie Fleury, and Vincent Szarek. Common to all of the works is their examination of the history, the types, or the design of the Mercedes-Benz car.

The core of the exhibit are the 30 silkscreen paintings of Andy Warhol’s series Cars, which employ eight selected types of Mercedes to document the history of the automobile. This important late series by Warhol remained unfinished and after around 20 years is being shown again complete.

Joining this series are drawings and airbrushed paintings by Robert Longo. Videos by Sylvie Fleury blend the myth of the legendary Mercedes-Benz automobile with some of the most contemporary ideas from the art and fashion worlds. Vincent Szarek uses design elements from the Mercedes-Benz SLR as the starting point for his group of sculptures, which were digitally developed as a modern form of drawing, rendered with 3D programs.
