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.


Working with the Wall since the 1960s
“Wall Works” focuses on the artistic exploration of the wall as a fundamental artistic element since the 1960s. A selection of 46 wall pieces from Edition Schellmann purchased by the Nationalgalerie in Berlin, works from the museum’s own collections and works that were produced specially for the exhibition of the same name are presented in this exhibition. The interaction between the works creates an overview of the variety of artistic approaches to the wall in Minimal and Conceptual Art, Arte Povera and in postmodern and contemporary art.
The exhibition and purchase are documented and explained in essays, ample illustrations and artists’ texts.
