The collection on display at K20 has been assembled since 1961 and includes major works of classical modernism. A selection of over 120 works by Paul Klee gives visitors an impression of the collection’s rich holdings. The exhibition also includes high-profile paintings by artists such as Max Beckmann, Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso.
In certain sections, pictures from the historical avant-garde enter into dialogue with works by contemporary artists of the non-Western canon, including Etel Adnan, Nevin Aladağ, and Kader Attia. In addition, classical works by the Surrealists Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, Joan Miró, and Max Ernst are complemented by recent acquisitions of Egyptian Surrealism.
Post-World War II movements can be seen through works by artists such as Francis Bacon, Alberto Giacometti, and Helena Vieira da Silva. The monumental installation Palazzo Regale by Joseph Beuys is on permanent display.
