In its new presentation of the collection, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart establishes a dialogue between works from the private Scharpff-Striebich collection and works from its own stocks. Contemporary positions and works since the 1960s which gain a new topicality through the retrospective view, make clear the complexity and contradictory nature of our society.

For some time now tense situations have characterised our everyday lives. From curfews and violence to the search for our own identity, we are constantly in the process of seeking re-orientation. Art symbolises the uncertainty and the instability which we experience on a daily basis. In addition to numerous illustrations of the works, the catalogue also includes short statements by the artists in which they comment on their works, thereby complementing their artistic oeuvre.
