Photography, Video, Mixed Media II

New Acquisitions

December 9th 2004 — March 28th 2005
Mercedes-Benz Contemporary

The Mercedes-Benz Art Collection was initiated in 1977, and has now grown to include about 1300 works by over 300 German and international artists. At first it concentrated on classical panel painting, then from the early 1990s media works in the broadest sense have been incorporated, regularly, and with great clarity of focus.

For some years this—overall still narrowly based—photography, video and Mixed Media section has been extended rather more energetically. One factor here has been the collection’s basic tendency towards constructive, minimalist and conceptual trends as signposts through the overwhelming range of media art since about 1960. Another factor is that site-specific considerations have played an important part: in Germany we have paid particular attention to contemporary art developments in Stuttgart and Berlin, and at the same time acquisition planning has taken a long-term look at cultural developments in Asia, Africa and South America, where Mercedes-Benz is a major presence.
