Modern German art is explored through the work of six of the key figures who helped transform graphic practice in the 1960s and 70s.

Thirty four of the exhibits were gifted to the museum by Count Duerckheim in December 2013, while the rest are on loan from his renowned private collection, which includes many important examples from this period.

Highlights include Gerhard Richter’s ‘Pin-up’ and ‘Installation’ drawings, a sketchbook that belonged to Sigmar Polke in which he satirizes post-war reconstruction in West Germany and examples from the ‘Pandemonium series’ by Georg Baselitz.

Other featured artists are A.R. Penck, Markus Lüpertz and Blinky Palermo.
