Daimler Contemporary is the lavishly renovated Berlin home to some of the 1,800 works of the Daimler Art Collection. Relatively small at 600 square metres, the exhibition space is devoted to 20th century Modernist, conceptual, and abstract works, including paintings, sculptures and graphic art. Exclusive and intimate, you need to ring a bell to gain entry.
Over the last 20 years, the collection has grown from selected Modernist art of Southwest Germany, Bauhaus, and DeStijl, to a largely international collection. Contributions from the likes of Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons now sit alongside Josef Albers, Max Bill, and Walter de Maria.
The gallery tends to rotate themed works from the larger collection, typically showing up to 80 at a time and often led by new acquisitions. Around four yearly exhibitions focus on individual artists well represented by the Daimler Art Collection, often in collaboration with other Daimler galleries and private collections.
