With the Viehof Collection, the Deichtorhallen Hamburg will be presenting one of the most significant private collections of contemporary art in Germany from 1 October 2016 to 17 January 2017 in two locations, the Hall for Contemporary Art and the Falckenberg Collection in Hamburg-Harburg.


The Viehof Collection, which includes important parts of the Speck and Rheingold collections, brings together over 950 works in painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, installations, and video with a focus on German art from the post-war era to today.

The exhibition at the Hall for Contemporary Art and the Falckenberg Collection is centered around high-profile groups of works by various artists, including Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Candida Höfer, Jörg Immendorff, Sigmar Polke, Daniel Richter, and Rosemarie Trockel. The presentation of large groups of works will in some cases be conceived in collaboration with the artists in order to develop a dialog between artistic and curated spaces. This retrospective of contemporary art, which consists entirely of works from the collection, shows the extraordinary multifacetedness of the collectors’ passionate and pioneering work.
