Die Sammlungen. The Collections. Les Collections

Permanent exhibition
Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart

The collections of the Nationalgalerie at Hamburger Bahnhof trace artistic tendencies from 1960 to the present day. Since the opening of the museum in 1996, the presentation of the Marx Collection, with works by artists including Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly, has been of particular importance – in addition to the Nationalgalerie’s holdings of important works by artists such as Dieter Roth, Bruce Nauman and Carolee Scheemann. Based on these pioneers, who dissolved the boundaries of traditional art forms, the museum’s exhibitions and programmes focus on the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary art. In addition, the collection presentations also show works from the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection im Hamburger Bahnhof. The holdings are presented in thematic exhibitions as well as varying collection presentations under the title Die Sammlungen. The Collections. Les Collections.

Outdoor Sculptures

Sculptures and – partly walk-in – installations by Hans Peter Adamski, Georg Baselitz, Elmgreen & Dragset, Tom Fecht, Urs Fischer, Robert Indiana, John Knight, Bruce Nauman, and Franz West, are on display in front of and behind the museum building. A light installation by American artist Dan Flavin also belongs to the building. In 1996 Flavin designed the fluorescent tubes with blue and green fluorescent light especially for the façade and the historical side wings of the museum.
