Museum Kunst Palast Opens New Colours A selection from the Kemp collection

The Museum Kunst Palast presents NEW COLOURS: A selection from the Kemp collection.

The Kemp collection is one of the largest collections in Germany with a focus on the styles of Art Informel and colour field painting. The presentation of a selection of the most important works from this style coincides with the bestowal of this significant private collection upon museum kunst palast.

The collection is founded on the work of the painter Carl Buchheister, a pioneer of Abstraction in Germany and close companion to the Dadaist Kurt Schwitters. The formal diversity of Buchheister’s work finds its match in the wealth of works such as those by Kenneth Noland, Cy Twombly or Richard Tuttle, through to Gerhard Hoehme and Karl Otto Götz.
