Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary

The Collection Book

This publication unfolds differentiated paths, forming a topography with sequences of potential narratives and a collective archive of visual imaginary from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary collection in Austria.

Within this seemingly labyrinthine context, the work of the foundation becomes an abstract and at the same time concrete sphere containing its artworks and commissions, projects and exhibitions, issues and ideas – the practice of a foundation that is a collection and at the same time determined through impermanence and sitelessness. As such, the book emphasizes the act of collecting as practice(s) throughout multiple parallel universes.

The Collection Book features a diverse and impressive cross-section of over 60 contemporary artists, from Ai Weiwei to Isa Genzken, Olafur Eliasson to Pipilotti Rist, Carsten Höller to Cerith Wyn Evans, and Gregor Schneider to Fiona Banner.
