At the spectacular Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart, designed by architects van Berkel & Bos, an equally spectacular art event is taking place on the occasion of Mercedes-Benz’s 125th anniversary. The Daimler Art Collection is presenting itself to the public with 250 works spanning the classic modern period to international contemporary art. Without having to move a single car, works by artists such as Adolf Hölzel, Andy Warhol, and Sylvie Fleury have been integrated into the automobile display. Tracing the path of the regular museum tour, the publication assembles all of the aspects of the exhibition in magazine format, including pictures, essays, and biographies of the artists. This is supplemented by a chronology of important events from the history of art, culture, and architecture in Stuttgart, covering the period from 1886 to 2011 and paying tribute to the 125th anniversary of the automobile and the Württembergian inventors Karl Benz, Gottlieb Daimler, and Wilhelm Maybach.

Artists featured (selection):
Josef Albers, John M. Armleder, Sylvie Fleury, Nic Hess, Adolf Hölzel, Robert Longo, Philippe Parreno, Charlotte Posenenske, Anselm Reyle, Michael Sailstorfer, Pietro Sanguineti, Anton Stankowski, Andy Warhol, Simone Westerwinter, Ben Willikens.
