More About This Title Streifzüge durch die Moderne


The Graphic Collection of the Kunsthalle Mannheim is one of the first systematic collections of modern art worldwide. Since its founding in 1911, the focal points—expressionism, new objectivity, and works on paper by sculptors—have been consistently expanded upon, parallel with the respective current artistic developments. Despite great losses through confiscations by the National Socialists, a high-quality and multifaceted group of works has remained intact. With nearly 500 illustrations, this catalogue presents a select cross-section of this unique collection.


Christine Hopfengart has worked in various museums, including the National Museums in Berlin, is the former deputy director of the Kunsthalle Nürnberg, and is a former curator of the Kunsthalle Bremen. In 2001 she was appointed as head of the Paul Klee Foundation in Bern, where she worked as a curator for the exhibition projects and artists’ archives since 2005. Ulrike Lorenz is a former director of the Kunstsammlung Gera and the Otto Dix House, and is currently director of the Kunsthalle Mannheim, Germany.
