Unity Diversity | Einheit Mannigfaltigkeit

The richness of form and diversity of the works brought together in this gallery presentation determine the image imparted by the show.

It is a limited number of carefully chosen works. Some are comprised of several elements joined to form a unity, while others consist of thematically coherent cycles of works. In each case, the unity derives from the diversity. The same can be said of the clearly structured exhibition.

The exhibition is a metaphor, as it were, for the way the gallery’s profile has taken form over the decades. This is often perceived as an inviolable unity – which is certainly true insofar as many criteria, views and ideas have been shaped by the year 1969, a date marking the start of the gallery’s activity with historical precision.

But the 1960s are by no means an arbitrary place and setting within the history of art. The fact that the subsequent path is not characterised by uniformity is due to the relevance of the works and the artistic personalities who often found their way to the gallery in the early years, but also over the ensuing course of time.

In any case, we believe that a closer look can evince and affirm the primacy of diversity.
