The Collection of Stiftung Christliche Kunst Wittenberg

 

The Stiftung Christliche Kunst Wittenberg owns a high-calibre collection of original graphic works on religious and existential themes by internationally renowned artists from the 20th century to the present day. They include the likes of Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Käthe Kollwitz, Max Pechstein, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Oskar Kokoschka, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Joseph Beuys, Robert Rauschenberg, Georg Baselitz, Werner Tübke, Wolfgang Mattheuer, Keith Haring and Damien Hirst, but also Michael Morgner, Michael Triegel, Edgar Knobloch, Katerina Belkina and Thomas A. Straub.

The artists represented in the foundation deal with the existential questions of life, love and death; they draw power and hope from the stories of the Bible. The individual works are characterised by all manner of personal confessions of faith.

The exhibited works offer highly expressive descriptions of human values, and thus symbolise a humanism that transcends nations, cultures and religions.
