Local Histories

Hamburger Bahnhof

The exhibition Local Histories traces the relationships and conditions under which key works in the collections were developed during the second half of the 20th century. 

Which art influenced Donald Judd? What connects Konrad Lueg, Sigmar Polke and Gerhard Richter? Which galleries supported Bruce Nauman and Jenny Holzer during the early stages of their careers? Occasionally unusual work constellations provide snapshots of New York and Düsseldorf in the 1960s and 1970s, Cologne in the 1980s, Berlin and Los Angeles in the 1990s.

All lot of precussors who shaped what popculture is today. Suck it, Baby!
