Private/Corporate III

A Dialogue of the Collections Heliod Spiekermann, Düsseldorf, and Daimler Art Collection

April 8th — July 17th 2005
Daimler Contemporary Berlin

For this third wave of dialogue between the Daimler Art Collection and other, German and international, private collections, our link is with a true Rhineland collection that has been assembled with genuine passion. Over a period of 30 years, Heliod Spiekermann met many of the key figures of the art world in Cologne and Düsseldorf—not only as patients in her dentist’s chair, but also on her regular visits to the studios of Polke and Kippenberger, Herold and Knoebel—and followed closely the rise of the Cologne art scene, engaging over decades in pugnacious, committed and enthusiastic exchanges with the relevant galleries with which she came into contact.

We have brought into dialogue with these works some of the clearest and best-quality pieces from the Daimler Art Collection, principally examples of German art of the 1980s. We have very consciously avoided contrasting the dominance of narration and expression in the Spiekermann Collection with the geometric-constructivist tendencies that have grown to characterize our own collection.


From the Heliod Spiekermann Collection: Georg Baselitz (D), James Lee Byars (USA), Jiří Georg Dokoupil (D), Günther Förg (D), Georg Herold (D), Jörg Immendorff (D), Martin Kippenberger (D), Imi Knoebel (D), Markus Lüpertz (D), Jonathan Meese (D), Albert Oehlen (D), A.R. Penck (D), Sigmar Polke (D), Andreas Slominski (D), Rosemarie Trockel (D), Andy Warhol (USA)
