Under Construction. New Acquisitions for the Nationalgalerie Collection – Hamburger Bahnhof
„Under Construction“ at Hamburger Bahnhof presents fifteen new – partly large-format – acquisitions which focus on the mechanisms of exhibition and museum collection strategies. The exhibition reflects on aspects such as sustainability and diversity as guidelines for the institutional collecting of art. The show includes paintings, installations, sculptures, videos and works on paper, in many cases new acquisitions from the past few years which are now being shown to the public for the first time. It comprises 11 acquisitions by the Stiftung der Freunde der Nationalgalerie für zeitgenössische Kunst, two acquisitions by the Freunde der Nationalgalerie and two donations to the Nationalgalerie.
