"Nature – Beauty and Destruction" as the motto of the LBBW special exhibition
The annual special exhibition of a private collection at art KARLSRUHE provides an in-depth insight into the passion and commitment of private collecting. Special exhibitions such as the Würth Collection (2017), Frieder Burda (2018), Peter C. Ruppert (2019), Hans-Peter Haas Foundation (2020) or, most recently, the collection of Maria Lucia and Ingo Klöcker (2022), which deliberately explored the motif of the feminine in art.
Haberkorn will cover a broad spectrum - from the Impressionist Max Slevogt, who painted the "Quarry near Albersweiler" in 1912, to the contemporary duo Julian Charrière and Julius von Bismarck, who recreated and blew up rock formations. Nature vandalism as a theme. According to Sarah Haberkorn, the work also deals with the question of "which landscapes are categorised as worthy of protection and what happens when they are destroyed".
The fact that even decades ago the LBBW art collection was not only used to decorate the company's business premises, but was also dedicated to the promotion of artists and the social issues of the time, is shown by the fact that the Landesbank has repeatedly acquired works over the past century that deal with issues of identity, globalization, digitalization, the environment and sustainability, among others.
