This publication features highlights from the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection, ranging from classic modern pieces and the abstract avant-garde, to international contemporary art. The accent is on the ways that the works are engaged in referential dialogue and discourse among themselves. The history of art is not examined in terms of “innovation” and “progress,” but rather it is presented as the association of images involved in temporary, argumentative contexts. The Mercedes-Benz Art Collection, established in 1977, is one of the most important, internationally renowned corporate collections in Europe. It is comprised of around 1,800 works of art, with a focus on twentieth-century abstract art. This third volume on the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection presents paintings, prints, and objects, documenting the exhibitions in Berlin, Vienna, and Buenos Aires in 2009 and 2010.

With texts by Susanne Bronner, Nadine Brüggebors, Miriam Bürkle, Christian Ganzenberg, Friederike Horstmann, Philipp John, Marion Keiner, Claudia Kleinbub, Karin von Maur, Andreas Pinczewski, Astrid Sylvia Schönhagen, Rudolf Scheutle, Germaid Ruck, Claudia Seidel, Renate Wiehager et.a.
