GERMANY IS NOT AN ISLAND
Contemporary Art Collection of the Federal Republic of Germany, Acquisitions 2012 - 2016.
The exhibition presents a selection of works acquired over the last five years by a specialist committee for the Contemporary Art Collection of the Federal Republic of Germany. It includes works by renowned young artists. The acquisitions testify to the high standard of the Federal Collection and show how historical and current developments, collective viewing habits and the questioning of image constructs translate into contemporary art. Ranging from large-scale installations to drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, video and sound works, the selection bears witness to the wealth of media and techniques that distinguish contemporary artistic practice.
An exhibition of the Bundeskunsthalle in cooperation with the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media.
