Concrete Concerns. Teufel Collection
Heinz Teufel (1936–2007) ran galleries in Cologne, Koblenz, Mahlberg, Berlin and Dresden from 1966 to 1998. The donation of the art collection built up together with his wife Anette was nonetheless reserved for his home town Stuttgart. The roughly two hundred works of the Teufel Collection – paintings, sculptures as well as works on paper – established in 2009 one of today’s main collection focuses in the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart: concrete art.
After its first presentation in 2009, the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart took the 10th anniversary of Heinz Teufel’s death as an opportunity to once again present a selection from this collection. The exhibition illustrated with 43 works by 27 international artists the basic tendencies and developments that concrete art has taken since its beginnings in the first third of the 20th century.
