Berlin, 26 March 2018 (kk) – Josef Albers, Max Bill, and Günther Fruhtrunk are just some of the renowned artists whose works are represented at the Museum für Konkrete Kunst in Ingolstadt (MKK). A selection of around 30 works from almost the same amount of artists is going to be on display in the capital at Ketter Kunst as of 28 June.

The opening of the MKK in 1992 marked a big gain for the German museum landscape. Based on the collection of Eugen Gomringer, which the city of Ingolstadt had acquired, the inventory was continuously increased through further acquisitions, gifted estates and donations. Since 2007 the museum is also home of the Foundation for Concrete Art and Design.

“The close cooperation with the leading institution for Concrete Art is an honor for our house and a sign of appreciation for the efforts we have made in this field“, says Robert Ketterer, owner of Ketterer Kunst.

Dr. Simone Schimpf, head of the Museum for Concrete Art, is also very pleased about cooperating with the acclaimed auction house: “We are delighted with the opportunity to present a selection of works from our collection at the Berlin premises of Ketterer Kunst. The works showcase the quality of our collection and will surely be met with great excitement by the Berlin visitors.“

Concrete Art, which is based on geometrical principles, does not gain its special appeal from the
abstraction of materiality, but from the concretion of the immaterial. It has deservedly become one of the most sought-after and most exciting art styles.

While the MKK has always focused on bridging established and contemporary positions in abstract
geometric art, which, owing to its closeness to Constructivism, Bauhaus and De Stijl has always had a strong affinity towards design and applied arts, the focus of the exhibition at Ketterer Kunst is on
questions regarding the range of Concrete Art and how concrete the world we live in actually is. The Berlin exhibition predominantly addresses the style's versatility and highlights interesting aspects such as Neon Colors, Foldings or the Birth of the Logo.

Following the opening speech of the exhibition “Zu Gast bei Ketterer Kunst Berlin – Das Museum für Konkrete Kunst in Ingolstadt“ on 28 June at 7 pm, delivered by Ketterer Kunst's curator Dr. Simone Wiechers, the exhibition will be introduced by Dr. Simone Schimpf, director of the Museum for Concrete Art.
