Local Histories

Works from the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection at Hamburger

“Things can only be diverse and should be diverse,” wrote Donald Judd in 1964 about the art scene in New York, and hence rejected a one-dimensional ordering of art history in favour of an open encounter with works of art.

In this sense, the works in this experimental collection presentation are also set in relation to one another along with their specific local context: situational ‘snapshots’ from the 1960s in New York and Düsseldorf, to the 1980s in Cologne, and up to the 1990s in Berlin and Los Angeles, which are deepened and thought further in the accompanying essays of this exhibition catalogue.

Published alongside the exhibition at Nationalgalerie Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin (15 December 2018 – 29 September 2019).
