KUNSTHAUS : KOLLITSCH
At the beginning of 2014 Sigrun and Günther Kollitsch opened their new company headquarters, and in doing so they created not only a special place for their staff but also an appropriate setting with sufficient space for their personal sphere of interest – fine art. From this starting point the KUNSTHAUS : KOLLITSCH was formed, enhancing the office building with contemporary art and aiming to combine the world of work with the world of art at a high level. In the modern, museum-like ambience of the generously proportioned listed building, contemporary art by young, innovative and also established artists is presented, the collection being changed on an annual basis. The changing exhibitions show works from the Kollitsch collection and loaned works, some of which can also be purchased.
The Kollitsch collection is a private collection of contemporary art with an international perspective, and has been steadily built up over past years. It includes works in all artistic media, such as paintings, drawings, sculpture, installations, photography and video, and offers a cross-section of the variety of artistic modes of expression over the whole spectrum of modern art.
The KUNSTHAUS : KOLLITSCH is led by an experienced, dedicated team that is passionate about contemporary art and culture. The individual artistic positions for the collection and the exhibitions are selected by Sigrund and Günther Kollitsch, in cooperation with different curators and advisors as well as collection curator Magdalena Koschat. The conceptual and content-related orientation is discussed within the group and future strategies are drawn up accordingly. The exhibition SCHAU….8 (30/09/2002 – 07/07/2023) was put together in cooperation with curators Katharina Boesch and Andreas Krištof (Kurator:innen-Kollektiv section.a).
