Overview

The Daimler Art Collection was founded in 1977 and has since grown to include about 1,800 works by more than 600 artists. The focus of the collection is on Constructivist, Concrete and Minimalist works by artists of the Stuttgart avant-garde, the Bauhaus and today's international Contemporary scene. This follow-up volume to 2006's collection catalogue, Minimalism and After, concentrates on the photographic, video, mixed media, sculptural and commissioned works that the Daimler Collection has acquired since the early 1990s. Detailed essays present and discuss approximately 300 works by more than 125 artists, including Nam June Paik, John M. Armleder, David Goldblatt, Guy Tillim, Walter de Maria, Anthony Cragg, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol and Sylvie Fleury. Not only does Blitzen-Benz BANG explore central aspects of one of the oldest and most important German corporate collections in existence today, but it is also a survey of the important stylistic developments in international art from the 1960s to the present.
