Purchased. Recent aquisitions by the Prints Collection 2003 - 20013

The Prints Collection opens its doors for the Cabinet Exhibition, presenting an impressive selection of museum acquisitions over the last ten years. The main focus is on contemporary art, drawing lines between sketches, prints, photography and even paper cuts.<//span>

Jorinde Voigt (*1977) develops in her delicately styled work an own visual language and an abstract, symbolic code. The 1982 cycle 'Totenreklame' (advertising the dead) by the Dresden-based artist Ralf Kerbach (*1956) is  born of the ideas of illustrating a standard travel guide, using the periphery of Dresden to research the inner life of German history and mythology. Translating an old form into its contemporary counterpart is the topic of the cycle 'Arbeiterklasse und Intelligenz' (the working class and intelligence), Margret Hoppe (*1981) uses photography to critically appraise the monumental painted oeuvre by the Leipzig-based artist Werner Tübke. A large-format paper cut by the painter Annette Schröter and printed works by Oliver Kossack, Rosa Loy, Olaf Nicolai, Neo Rauch, Christoph Ruckhäberle, David Schnell and Matthias Weischer round off the exhibition.
