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.

A Critique and Emancipation of Childhood

Go and play with the Giant!
The catalogue accompanying this exhibition at Villa Stuck is aimed at both adults and children and takes as its theme ideas about childhood from the perspective of contemporary art. In addition to text and images, it also contains pages that invite readers to participate. One of the consequences of the digital revolution has been that children have long been considered equal partners to adults. "Adults are just a bit bigger," says Hans-Joachim Gelberg, who published his famous children's literary annual, "Go and Play with the Giant", in 1971.
