Filmstill aus dem Kunstwerk Damaged Goods von Nathalie Djurberg und Hans Berg


New Presentation of the 20th / 21st Century Collection
19 July 2024 – 31 December 2025

Spreading out in six major rooms devoted to the display of the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart collection, the presentation THIS IS TOMORROW will feature contemporary pieces side by side with prominent examples of twentieth century art. Representing a wide range of mediums, they are works that take a critical look at the body, examine identity issues and social coexistence, explore the relationship between nature and artificial intelligence, process experiences of war and violence, and more. With its abundance of installations, paintings, media artworks, sculptures, and works on paper – more than 100 objects in all – , the new presentation is intended to spark discourse on themes of especial relevance for society today. 

Works by such artists as Eleanor Antin, Marcel Duchamp, Katharina Fritsch, Hannah Höch, Käthe Kollwitz, Jeff Koons, Joseph Kosuth, Maria Lassnig, Yoko Ono, and Andy Warhol will enter into dialogue with numerous new acquisitions and gifts of the past years, including examples by Nobert Bisky, Burhan Doğançay, Teresa Margolles, Ulrike Ottinger, Cindy Sherman, Hito Steyerl, Haegue Yang, and many others. Works by Clément Cogitore, Simone Leigh, Anys Reimann, Deborah Roberts, and Ben Willikens on loan from the Scharpff-Striebich Collection, the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection, and the Weishaupt Collection will further enhance the selection.
