The Kopp collection

Herbert and Annette Kopp have compiled an unusual collection, which they present for the first time. There are many notable works from a variety of artists, viz. Werner Büttner, William N. Copley, Sylvie Fleury, Günther Förg, Philip Guston, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Paul McCarthy, Albert Oehlen, or Andreas Slominski. They are countered by a younger generation of artists, such as Björn Dahlem, Hansjoerg Dobliar, Don Doe, Carroll Dunham, Robert Hawkins, Arthuro Herrera, Christian Holstad, Violet Hopkins, Thomas Houseago, Jim Lambie, Jonathan Meese, Daniel Richter, Tim Rollins, Steven Shearer, Dash Snow, Christoph Steinmeyer, Tal R, as well as Gerd and Uwe Tobias. The time-honoured clashes between abstraction, conceptualisation, and figuration are revealed in this lucid collection as questions of a discussion laid to rest a long time ago.
