Every artistic work opens up a whole cosmos either through the working method used, the material, the medium, the formal idiom or the approach taken. Artists pursue individual strategies, appropriate themes or else work extremely hard on them. This gives rise to fantastic, personal, sometimes also oppressive worlds, so rich and productive that they release an enormous amount of artistic energy. The collection links these individual worlds into a whole, impels or intensifies specific themes or else orders them according to its particular rules.

The Collection Exhibition provides insight into intimate space, into fantasy and dream worlds. It engages with artistic obsessions and the apparently banal aesthetic of the repetitive and systematic. Opposite the macrocosm is the microcosm, opposite the object the body, and opposite the public the private. To render these worlds and their rules and orders visible, the rooms are devoted to individual works and larger work groups by selected artists.
