About the exhibition:

Baden-Württemberg is home to a concentration of collectors and collections that is unique in Germany, with holdings that are exceptional in terms of both quantity and quality. On the occasion of the 10-year anniversary of the Museum of Contemporary Art in atrias 1 and 2 at ZKM | Karlsruhe, the museum will be transformed to a “Temporary Museum of Modernism”. More than 100 years of art from the early 20th century to the first decade of the 21st will be documented based on seminal, privately owned works from Baden-Württemberg, thus presenting key trends in modernism and postmodernism through to the present. The lavish overview ranges from Paul Cézanne, Max Beckmann, and Pablo Picasso, to Jackson Pollock, Joseph Beuys and Anselm Kiefer to Martin Kippenberger and Tobias Rehberger.
