The ZKM | Museum für Neue Kunst opened its doors in Karlsruhe in December 1999 with the goal of making works from important private art collections in Baden-Württemberg accessible to the public. A large exhibition has now been prepared on the occasion of the museum’s tenth anniversary that will demonstrate that the state of Baden-Württemberg is unequalled in its unique concentration of private collectors. Nowhere else in the country are the private collections so diverse, of such high quality, and so internationally oriented. As a veritable musée imaginaire, this volume assembles major works from these collections, providing a rich survey of artistic movements and tendencies from the onset of modernism to the present day. This opulently illustrated publication contains works by a wide variety of artists, such as Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Joseph Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Martin Kippenberger, and Tobias Rehberger.
