| 25 years of the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg: a panorama of contemporary art

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 Báez, 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.

The KUNSTMUSEUM WOLFSBURG has been collecting international contemporary art since 1994. With the acquisition of key works of late modernism and important additions from contemporary art, a top-class collection has been built up. Parallel to this, the museum presents an ambitious exhibition program, tracing cultural connections for the public. The exhibition On Everyone’s Lips is curated by UTA RUHKAMP.
