AGAIN AND AGAINST

AGAIN AND AGAINST

From the Collection of Contemporary Art

Hamburger Kunsthalle 

 

The title of the collection presentation again and against is understood as programmatic. It indicates the two basic principles of the exhibition: repetition and contradiction. Works from the museum’s holdings of international contemporary art are brought into oftentimes surprising and unconventional situations of dialogue: Sigmar Polke/Haegue Yang, Maria Lassnig/Georg Baselitz, Neo Rauch/Tony Cragg, Georg Baselitz/Mike Kelley, Vajiko Chachkhiani/Peter Doig among others. In the process of comparative viewing unsuspected relationships and astonishing common features come to the fore, while the distinctive character of each artistic signature remains. The collection presentation again and against permits the discovery, new discovery and rediscovery of significant works of contemporary art held in the Hamburger Kunsthalle’s collection.

Georg Baselitz, Vajiko Chachkhiani, Tony Cragg, Peter Doig, David Hockney, Annika Kahrs, Mike Kelley, Maria Lassnig, Richard Long, Wolfgang Mattheuer, Olaf Metzel, Sigmar Polke, Neo Rauch, Gerhard Richter, Pia Stadtbäumer, Cy Twombly, Stephan von Huene, Haegue Yang
