OPEN: celebrating the opening of the Heidi Horten Collection Exhibition featuring Stephan Balkenhol, Nick Oberthaler, Robert Rauschenberg, Not Vital and Erwin Wurm
OPEN celebrates the opening of the Heidi Horten Collection's new home: a museum founded by the patron and collector Heidi Goëss-Horten.
The exhibition, featuring Stephan Balkenhol, Nick Oberthaler, Robert Rauschenberg, Not Vital and Erwin Wurm, focuses on the building’s architecture, as well as the history of the site and its predecessor buildings, and marks the inauguration of the building as a stage for art. It features a selection of thirty works, offering an illustrative insight into the collection, which has been cultivated and expanded by Heidi Goëss-Horten over decades and includes a large number of recent acquisitions of contemporary art. The spotlight is shone on the collection’s openness and diversity on the one hand and its artistic and thematic centres on the other.
