In the group show, 15 artists present a wide-ranging insight into the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection focusing on conceptual and reduced tendencies. All artistic positions are connected to France: its language, culture and art history.

The artists quote, refer to and re-conceptualize idols such as Marcel Duchamp (Bethan Huws) or André Cadere (Saâdane Afif). They also make use of everyday objects – such as shopping bags, small bottles of scented oil, or a bicycle. Others deal with traditions of painting. François Morellet breaks down the conventional canvas into a multitude of parts, while with Elaine Sturtevant, Daniel Buren, and Olivier Mosset, important representatives of a conceptual view of painting from the 1960s to the 1990s are presented.
