20 Years Langen Foundation. Three Generations – One Fascination
Group exhibition

May 5th-August 8th, 2024.


Raketenstation Hombroich 1, 41472

In the occasion of this year’s 20th anniversary, a comprehensive exhibition is now being shown, which, based on the works of the collection of Viktor and Marianne Langen, focuses on the collected works of the children and grandchildren of the founding couple.

Nine family members, who were influenced by the passion of their parents or grandparents, provide insight into their very personal exploration of art, in order to honour the life’s work of Viktor and Marianne Langen. In doing so, the selected works are brought together for the first time in a dialogical arrangement across different media, formats, and genres. In this diversity of different artistic positions, the focus is repeatedly on art-historically significant artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Geta Brătescu, or Jean Dubuffet, whose works were partly collected over several generations. Relevant actors of current art such as Marcel Dzama, Claire Morgan, Claudia Wieser or Julius von Bismarck are also represented with works.
