The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Daniel Spoerri

Historia Rerum Rariorum
One whole summer long, Daniel Spoerri is to transform the Heinrich-Sauermann-Haus on Flensburg’s Museumsberg into his own personal Wunderkammer. Long before there were museums in the modern sense of the word, wealthy collectors liked to display eclectic assortments of curiosities, works of art and natural objects in Kunstkammer or Wunderkammer ¬– cabinets of curiosities ¬in which viewers could marvel at the wonders of creation.

The title of this show and catalogue, “Historia Rerum Rariorum”, is derived from just such a seventeenth-century Wunderkammer. It brings together a selection of Spoerri’s works from the past two decades with a number of more recent pieces.
