The Mercedes-Benz Art Collection, one of the major German company art collections, is, for the first time, presenting an extensive body of works at the Museum für Neue Kunst | ZKM Karlsruhe (Center for Art and Media Technology) Karlsruhe. The exhibition shows paintings, sculpture, photography and video art thematically. The Collection, founded in 1977, reflects the most important developments in 20th century abstract art starting with representative groups of works of concrete and constructive art, minimal art and conceptual art exhibits, to the most recent international art trends.

The exhibition shows painting, sculpture, photography and video art thematically, thus cutting across generations and classifications. The show centers around recent acquisitions. For the Karlsruhe exhibition, classical modern artists and avant-garde figures from the 1960/70s like Josef Albers, Daniel Buren, Francois Morellet, Gottfried Honegger, Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart, Richard Artschwager, Robert Ryman or Herman de Vries are placed alongside young artists such as Doug Aitken, John M Armleder, Tacita Dean, Cor Dera, Sylvie Fleury, Bernard Frize, Gail Hastings, Isabell Heimerdinger, Gerold Miller, Jonathan Monk, Kirsten Mosher, Ugo Rondinone, Karin Sander, Pietro Sanguinetti, Simone Westerwinter, Georg Winter and Andrea Zittel.

The Karlsruhe exhibition is the first stop on a world tour of the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection. Afterwards, selected works of art from the Corporate’s Collection will continue on to Detroit, Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town.
