New from the Collection is the title of a new exhibition series in which Museum Haus Konstruktiv, at irregular intervals, will show works from its collection that either have been recently acquired, or about which there is news to report.
The in-house collection is the heart of any museum: The works it contains are catalogued, restored if necessary and often presented either in the establishment itself or on loan elsewhere. They exemplify certain developments in art history and thus constitute both sensory visuals and illuminating research material. Our collection is constantly being enlarged by means of generous donations or targeted new purchases. With the exhibition series New from the Collection, Museum Haus Konstruktiv wishes to provide ongoing insight into current activity involving our collection of constructivist-concrete and conceptual art by showing new acquisitions or taking a fresh look at stories about older collection pieces: a newsletter in exhibition form.
The first edition of New from the Collection presents works by Imi Knoebel (b. 1940), Joseph Kosuth (b. 1945), Romy Weber (b. 1936), Ruth Pfalzberger (b. 1949) and others.
