The exhibition features a selection of high-caliber artworks from the Heidi Horten Collection, curated in three thematic categories that represent the collection's principal content areas: Expressionism, especially in its German variant with artwork by Franz Marc and Emil Nolde. Art from the 1960s and 1970s, with a specific emphasis on U.S., Italian, and German positions by Andy Warhol, Yves Klein and Henri Magritte. And painting and sculpture in the field of tension between figuration and abstraction with works from Francis Bacon, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Damien Hirst. Visitors of the museum will play a significant role in the exhibition concept. They will have the opportunity to select around twenty artworks from the collection, either on-site or through social media, which will then then be permanently displayed in a special area of the museum. By directly involving visitors in selecting artworks, the vision of the museum's founder takes on a fresh perspective.
