Against the Grain
Prints from the Günther and Annemarie Gercken Foundation
Günther and Annemarie Gercken have been passionate collectors of unconventional art for seventy years. They are particularly interested in prints and in existential questions of human experience. The greater part of their important collection of contemporary art has been transferred to a foundation based at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden.

The Kupferstich-Kabinett holds the works on paper and now presents a selection of masterpieces of printmaking. The exhibition unites contemporary works with a group of haunting portraits by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Edvard Munch from the Gercken Collection spanning a period of more than one hundred years from Modernism to the twenty-first century.

R. Penck; lithographs by Robert Mangold and Hermann Nitsch. Selected works and drawings by Monika Grzymala, Jenny Holzer, and Tomas Schmit broaden the display of graphic works.
