Kunstverein Wolfsburg – Best of 50 Years
The occasion for the publication of this catalogue and the homonymous exhibition was the Kunstverein Wolfsburg’s 50th anniversary in the context of which an intensive discussion of history and historical modes of thinking took place. The book introduces each decade of the Kunstverein’s history with an artistic position, each of which underscores the importance of this art institution. In accordance with an art society’s remit, predominantly young, unknown artists were presented, some of whom, however, were to establish themselves forcefully in the art scene in the years to come. Works by Gerhard Richter, Timm Ulrichs, Ji í Georg Dokoupil, Candida Höfer and Chicks On Speed are represented in this publication.
