The Mercedes-Benz Art Collection was founded in 1977 and has since grown to include about two thousand works by over eight hundred artists. Its focus is on Constructive, Concrete, and Minimalist concepts ranging from theStuttgart avant-garde of the twentieth century and the Bauhaus to international contemporary art. This part of the collection was presented in full in 2006 in the publication Minimalism and After.

The second volume concentrates on the photography, video and mixed media, sculptures, and commissioned work that have been integrated into the collection since the early nineties. Detailed essays present and discuss around three-hundred works by approximately 130 artists, such as Nam June Paik, John M Armleder, David Goldblatt, Guy Tillim, Walter de Maria, Anthony Cragg, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, and Sylvie Fleury. This volume not only explores central aspects of one of the oldest and most important German corporate collections, it is at the same time a survey of important developments and styles in international art from the sixties to the present.

With texts by Nadine Brüggebors, Claudia Seidel, Götz Adriani, Christian Ganzenberg, Wulf Herzogenrath, Gudrun Inboden, David Galloway, Ulrike Gehring, Pontus Hultén, Serge Lemoine, Ralph Melcher, Susanne Meyer-Büser, Tilman Osterwold and Renate Wiehager.
