The Haniel Collection – Distinctly Unique

From 15 December 2023 to 5 May 2024, the MKM Museum Küppersmühle für Moderne Kunst will be presenting excerpts from the Haniel Collection - Der eigene Weg.

Under the title The Haniel Collection – Distinctly Unique, the MKM Museum Küppersmühle für Moderne Kunst in Duisburg is presenting around 100 works from the collection of the renowned Duisburg-based family business to the public for the first time. The collection is of eminent art-historical importance and has been built up with great commitment since 1983.

The exhibition features works by: Georg Baselitz | Julius Bissier | Herbert Brandl | Peter Brüning | Carl Buchheister | Corneille | Karl Fred Dahmen | Ulrich Erben | Jean Fautrier | Lucio Fontana | Adolf Frohner | Winfred Gaul | Rupprecht Geiger | Raimund Girke | Katharina Grosse | K.O. Götz | Hans Hartung | Damien Hirst | Gerhard Hoehme | Hans Hofmann | Yves Klein | Imi Knoebel | Norbert Kricke | Piero Manzoni | Georges Mathieu | Henri Michaux | Ernst Wilhelm Nay | Richard Oelze | Blinky Palermo | Georg Karl Pfahler | Otto Piene | Arnulf Rainer | David Reed | Gerhard Richter | Jean Paul Riopelle | Bernard Schultze | Emil Schumacher | Sonderborg | Pierre Soulages | Antoni Tàpies | Fred Thieler | Hann Trier | Emilio Vedova | Alicia Viebrock | Fritz Winter | Wols | Jerry Zeniuk | Peter Zimmermann.

We are delighted to present the Haniel Collection to the public for the first time as an art-historical document of Art Informel and its environment.

The exhibition shows works of art that are closely linked to the history of the Federal Republic of Germany and the city of Duisburg. In conjunction with a visit to the MKM’s permanent exhibition, similarities but also different focal points to the Ströher Collection become apparent. The development of both collections and the origins of the MKM Museum Küppersmühle would not have been possible without private commitment. It is therefore very important to us to honour this with our exhibition.
