14 September 2016 – 2 April 2017: My Abstract World

My Abstract World, Installationsansicht, Installation View, 2016 © me Collectors Room, Photo Bernd BorchardtMoved by an enthusiasm for intense colour and bold expressive gestures, Thomas Olbricht has spent the last 30 years collecting abstract art in a wide variety of styles. At me Collectors Room, he will present a selection of his current favourites, drawn from his collection of 350 abstract works by ninety different artists. At the same time, with the installation of new seating arrangements, Oriental carpets and reading materials, Olbricht is transforming the exhibition spaces into a multi-sensory experience. This will allow the exhibition visitor to relax with music or have a drink while delving more deeply into the artworks on display.

My Abstract World brings together a selection of international artists, from established figures like Bernard Frize, Joseph Marioni and Katharina Grosse to representatives of a younger generation, including Ali Banisadr, Paul Fägerskiöld and David Ostrowski.

The Wunderkammer Olbricht

The Wunderkammer Olbricht

The practice of maintaining ‘cabinets of curiosities’ evolved during the Renaissance and Baroque. Such cabinets were collectors’ rooms in which precious artworks (artificialia), rare phenomena of nature (naturalia), scientific instruments (scientifica), objects from strange worlds (exotica), and inexplicable items (mirabilia) were preserved.
