Since 2013, the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection has strengthened its international profile by adding to it a significant new aspect of global contemporary art – through the acquisition of more than 40 artworks by approximately 20 Chinese artists. In the course of 2015 and 2016 these newly acquired artworks will be shown in a number of exhibitions held in Berlin and Stuttgart. The publication gives an overview of the entire exhibition series and includes both an introduction to the development of contemporary art in China as well as images and accompanying texts on the exhibited artworks.
With texts by Nadine Brüggebors, Christian Ganzenberg, Wiebke Hahn, Nadine Henrich, Irina Hiebert Grun, Friederike Horstmann, Julia Martha Müller, Liza Müller, Friederike Nymphius, Andreas Schmid, Astrid Silvia Schönhagen, Renate Wiehager
The booklet is available in German and English language.
As part of the current exhibition “Last night’s fortune teller” the booklet is given out for free at Mercedes-Benz Contemporary Berlin.
