For us, art is primarily a question of being able to think. Looking at our collection, it becomes clear that thinking about art, its aesthetic dimension, its ability to communicate, its quest for knowledge and the sublime, and its purpose within society, in general, is a question that is immanent within the system, but also an important factor in current artistic production. Minimalist, black-and-white or monochrome are just some qualities of many works in our collection. In formal terms, the pieces are often reduced and conceptual. At the same time, behind their diverse media surfaces there is always also humor or subtle charm: in the mobile white wall by the Austrian artist Heimo Zobernig, for example; in the opulent floral bouquet, renewed every day, on a tall plinth by the Dutch artist Willem de Rooij; in the Saros wall by the London-based German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans, a photographic portrait of the phenomenon of the solar eclipse, supplemented by photographs from other sources with a similar feel. These and many more works from our collection, by artists including Hans-Peter Feldmann, Günther Förg, Wade Guyton, Georg Herold, Cady Noland, Charlotte Posenenske, Florian Pumhösl, Karin Sander, and Christopher Williams, will be featured in this two-part exhibition.
We began collecting professionally at the end of the 1980s. Our focus is on international conceptual art at the turn of the millennium, covering the contemporary art of the last three decades. As well as museum-scale material, sculpture, painting, photography, and film, we also collect installations and small-format ephemera.
The exhibition title Out of Order refers not to some kind of malfunction, but to a resistance to any ordering principle, reflecting the mischievousness and non-conformism. Neues Museum is showing more than one hundred works from our collection. Where we are concerned, the ability to think and reflect should not be understood in overly complex terms – much of the work on show is very accessible, humorous and direct. Highlights from the collection will be shown in a two-part exhibition with very different presentation formats. The two parts of the exhibition are linked in particular by the presence of certain artists in both shows, appearing in different contexts.
