The Marble Palace

The exhibition shows works from the Federal Republic of Germany's collection of contemporary art, illustrating artists' interest in the social, political and ideological problems affecting the life of modern Germany and the whole of Europe. The exhibition has five sections - painting, graphic art, video installations, sculpture and photography. The Federative Republic of Germany collection of contemporary art dates from 1970. The collection now numbers more than one thousand works of post-war German art. The collection's trustee, Dr. Veit Loers, a former director of the Museum Abteiberg, Moenchengladbach, aims to not only trace the main tendencies, but also to reveal the special features of modern art. This is why it is necessary, in his words, to acquire works by both famous masters and young artists not yet known to the public.
