The private art collection of the Hilti Art Foundation includes over 200 top-quality paintings, sculptures and photographs from Classic Modernism to the present day. Volume 2 of the two-part catalogue of the collection presents 120 selected works from the middle of the twentieth century to the present day, from Josef Albers to Thomas Struth.
The part of the collection shown in Volume 2 contains in particular abstract and concrete art from 1950 to the present day which focuses on material, surface, space and movement as well as form, colour, rhythm and light. It includes works by Fontana, Klein, Manzoni, Uecker, Mack and Colombo as well as Albers, Bill, Fruhtrunk, von Graevenitz, Richter and Sonnier. There are major work complexes by Gottfried Honegger, Gotthard Graubner, Imi Knoebel and Sean Scully. A special position is occupied by photographs by Thomas Struth with their content aimed at civilisation and technology as well as nature and culture.
