The exhibition focusses on main themes that could have been recognized among the new acquisitions in the past years, just as it gives an impression of the diversity of contemporary artistic forms of expression in and outside of Saxony. For the exhibition Localization about 60 works from the genres of painting, graphic arts, sculpture, photography, installation and video art from the Kunstfonds’ holdings were selected. Special attention was paid to works from artists from Görlitz or Lusatia.
