Actually one of the most prominent German art collections: Viehof Collections

Deichtorhallen Hamburg presents one of the most significant German private collections of contemporary art at two locations, the Hall for Contemporary Art and the Falckenberg Collection in Hamburg-Harburg. The Viehof Collection, which includes important works from the Speck Collection and the Rheingold Collection, brings together over 950 works in painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, installations, and video with an emphasis on German art from the post-war era to today. Both catalog and exhibition focus on outstanding groups of work by individual artists including Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Candida Höfer, Jörg Immendorff, Sigmar Polke, Daniel Richter and Rosemarie Trockel. As far as possible, the presentation of larger bodies of work will be devised with participation of artists to develop a dialogue between artistic and curated spaces. This comprehensive exhibition in Hamburg, put together entirely from the works of the collection and curated by Dirk Luckow, reveals for the first time the extraordinary range of this collection in an overview of Minimalism, represented by names such as Carl Andre and Dan Flavin, via the 1980s in Cologne defined by Walter Dahn, Georg Herold, Martin Kippenberger and Albert Oehlen, the Düsseldorf School of Photography with Struth, Ruff and Sasse right up to the promising field of figurative art of the 21st century showcasing works by André Butzer, Peter Doig, Thomas Houseago, Jonathan Meese, Neo Rauch, Tal R, Corinne Wasmuth and many others.
