All of the selected works take up the theme of figuration and illuminate the rich variety with which the various artists examine it in terms of content and style. The motif “people” runs like a common thread through the exhibition. The combination and comparison of the paintings leads to extraordinary dialogues and surprising points of contact.

Besides paintings by Georg Baselitz, Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, works will also be presented by a younger generation of artists, such Tim Eitel, Susanne Kühn, or Simon Pasieka, some of which have never been shown before. Human existence will be related and elucidated from different perspectives in the various exhibition spaces of the museum. Light will be cast on how the artists in the collection take up the theme, and how it finds its way into individual forms of expression. In doing so, the exhibition also documents an accentuated cross section of the artistic currents of the past fifty years. Curated by Judith Irrgang and Christiane Righetti.
