Friendship. Nature. Culture. 44 Years of Daimler Art Collection

Works from the collection 1920-2021

Our anniversary exhibition ›Friendship. Nature. Culture. 44 Years of the Daimler Art Collection‹ looks back on the development of an internationally renowned corporate collection. From over 3,000 artworks in the collection, founded in 1977, about 100 works by ca. 70 artists have been selected. In a broad sense, relating to contemporary phenomena in the context of friendship, nature, and culture, the artistic works from a period of 100 years form networks and explore the interplay between art and human coexistence.

A Photographic Journey of Parallel Histories

Annu Palakunnathu Matthew will present her photo-based artwork, which is a striking blend of still and moving imagery. Her larger work draws on archival photographs as a source of inspiration to examine concepts of memory, cultural assumptions, and national identity. Some of her work explores the powerful appeal of family photographs and how they shape identity and memory. Matthew uses the medium of photography to challenge the distance between past and present and the separation between fact and fabricated history.
