From Otto Dix to Wolfgang Tillmans


Landesbank Baden-Württemberg LBBW’s art collection boasts icons of classic modernism and contemporary art. Its history properly speaking begins in 1971, when the bank, which had occasionally acquired works of art, instituted a program of continual purchases of modern and contemporary art. The collection’s focus was initially on art from the Stuttgart region and Baden-Württemberg. In the early 1990s, the acquisitions program was expanded to include international positions. “Collecting contemporary” is how the collection’s managers now sum up their objective: to buy outstanding works produced on the German art scene and present them in cooperation with renowned museums.

On occasion of LBBW’s bicentenary and in celebration of the longstanding collaborative relationship with the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, a new presentation showcases highlights from all divisions of the LBBW collection. The anniversary exhibition is accompanied by a thoroughly revised catalogue raisonné of more than 3,000 works in the collection, published as a three-volume box set. With works by Olafur Eliasson, Hannah Höch, Markus Lüpertz, Michel Majerus, Albert Oehlen, Neo Rauch, Cindy Sherman, Wolfgang Tillmans, Corinne Wasmuth, Gillian Wearing, and many others. Elke Buhr, Lutz Casper, and Andreas Röder contributed essays.
