To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg is presenting its extensive collection of contemporary art in what will be the largest survey of it to date. It includes more than 600 installations, groups of works, and large individual works of art in all media, dating back to the crucial year of 1968.
The spectrum of the 100 artists ranges from Franz Ackermann, Doug Aitken, and Firelei Baez, to Mithu Sen and Sam Taylor-Johnson, all the way to Jeff Wall and Thomas Zipp. This elaborate, lavishly illustrated volume gathers texts written by about 100 international authors-curators, directors, gallerists, collectors, and architects-on the artists in the collection. It achieves a multifaceted, overall picture of the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg's exquisite collection, as well as an impressive panorama of contemporary art from 1968 to the present.
