Germany, mon Amour! - Imago Mundi
Contemporary in Germany. Art. Architecture. Design.
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Bazon Brock, Peter Noever
An extraordinary collection where some of the most significant personalities of the contemporary art scene sit alongside a representative cross section of a young and very young generation of art creators. A visionary selection of over 200 works that together show a bold and compelling prolificacy, capable of leading German art away from the beaten track. As the curator Peter Noever writes in his introduction, “the artists, architects, and designers who are brought together here make it clear to see: art, like love, does not remain a merely archival matter, but much rather provides a fertile soil for the present and the future.” Narrative, condemnation, provocation, the grotesque, rupture and recomposition, references to images and legends that have changed history: a romantic, cynical, complex, restless, imaginative idea of the future, ‘made in Germany’.
Germany, mon Amour! Contemporary in Germany. Art. Architecture. Design is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
