9 March through 16 May 2005

Place of exhibition: Haus der Kunst, Munich/D

In an extensive exhibition entitled Occupying Space, t he Generali Foundation’s renowned international collect ion of contemporary art will have its premiere presentation, which will be shown at a number of Europe’s major art centers and museums. The international exhibition tour, which aims at presenting the collection to a broader audience, will begin in March 2005 at the Haus der Kunst in M unich and will travel to the Netherlands and also on to eastern Europe. A comprehensive collection catalogue of the same name was published in 2003. The large-scale exhibition offers an overview of the collection but is not l aid out as an "exhibition of achievements." I nstead, it forms connections between the various works. The dialogue-based presentation mirrors the concept of the collection. For the first venue at the Haus der Kunst a special project with artists is planned.

The Generali Foundation has distinguished itself through its well articulated and competent program for over 15 years, mainly since establishing an exhibition space in Vienna’s fourth district. In interplay with the exhibition activity and parallel to it, an extraordinary collection has been compiled. The collection comprises approximately 1 ,500 artworks by 160 artists. Particularly characteristic of the collection is its focus on art with a challenging and socially critical content ; on works from the 1960s and 1970s in dialogue with those of today’s young artists. Numerous pieces have been on loan for display in art institutions and museums throughout the world.
