If you intend to invest in art lucratively, you must first develop a sixth sense for it – and this museum is like an investor’s university.
Hamburger Bahnhof houses three important private collections: the collection of the Berlin entrepreneur Dr. Erich Marx (with artworks by Joseph Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Donald Judd, Roy Lichtenstein, Bruce Nauman, Keith Haring, Jeff Koons, Matthew Barney, Jeff Wall, Cindy Sherman, Rainer Fetting, Georg Baselitz, Thomas Struth, Andreas Gursky, and others).
The collection on permanent loan by the entrepreneur Friedrich Christian Flick contains 1,500 art works by around 150 artists (such as Alberto Giacometti, Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Nam June Paik, Dieter Roth, On Kawara, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Blinky Palermo, Isa Genzken, Pipilotti Rist, Wolfgang Tillmans, Paul McCarthy, etc.).
The gallery owner and publisher Egidio Marzona has also donated 600 works of conceptual art, land art, and minimal art plus Arte Povera (among others by Sol LeWitt, Mario Merz and Charlotte Proseneske) to the museum.
Also be sure not to miss the museum’s extraordinary collection of photography, video, and film art!
