Die Kunst ist super! (Art is super!) is the title under which the Nationalgalerie im Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart is showing a new presentation of works from its collections. In line with the motto "Die Kunst ist super!" proclaimed by Udo Kittelmann, this presentation is one of the most important steps on the path to the future positioning of the Hamburger Bahnhof under the new director of the Nationalgalerie. Spanning some 10,000 square meters, the exhibition uses thematic, monographic and motivic constellations, surprising dialogues and individual appearances rich in associations to cast works from the Nationalgalerie, the Marx Collection and the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection, as well as the Marzona Collection in Hamburger Bahnhof in a new light.
In an age that has seen supposedly stable systems of values collapse into crisis, their underlying instability laid bare, this new exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof presents art as a dependable variable. In all its flexibility and complexity, its creation of fictions and disillusionment of the same, whichever way you look at it: Art is super!
