The Hildebrand collection is a large private collection of contemporary art permanently on view at the G2 Kunsthalle in changing installations. The collection focuses on contemporary painting from Leipzig represented through significant art works by established as well as by younger emerging names, including Henriette Grahnert, Paule Hammer, Katrin Heichel, Uwe Kowski, Rosa Loy, Jochen Plogsties, Neo Rauch, Christoph Ruckhäberle, David Schnell, Matthias Weischer and many other artists. A second substantial nucleus of the collection consists of national and international artistic movements, currently represented at the G2 by Daniel Richter, Thomas Ruff or Tomás Saraceno.
