CONTEMPORARY ART FROM PRIVATE COLLECTIONS IN BIELEFELD
SEPTEMBER 14 – NOVEMBER 16, 2014
»Bielefeld Contemporary« is still on view until November 16. In this jubilee year for the city, 800 Years of Bielefeld, this exhibition creates a specific setting for some prominent collections. The exhibition is focusing on the city and the commitment of its citizens for contemporary art. It links historically to the Bielefelder Kunstverein’s earlier presentations of work relevant to the city and relating to local collections.
Significant works of contemporary art from the Hörmann, Christof Kerber, Kölsch & Welschof, OWL Holding, Teutloff Photo + Video Collection and Wannenmacher collections will be displayed in different cabinets to present six individual concepts of collecting. The exhibition is accompanied by an artistic-photographic reflection on the respective collections. This is being developed in collaboration with Hayley Austin, Johannes Heinke, Eliane Lustner, Jan Maschinski, Giorgio Morra and Alexandra Polina, students under the direction of Professor Roman Bezjak from the Department of Design at Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences, and it will be integrated into the display.
