Located in a former Second World War telecommunications bunker that has been renovated by the British architect John Pawson, the museum encourages a conversation between different periods and cultures offering an alternative perception of the antique and creates a new perspective on the artworks, leading viewers through a synesthetic experience.

Arthur de Ganay already started collecting photography while studying architecture in Paris during the mid-1990s. It was his encounter with the photographic oeuvre of Hiroshi Sugimoto in 1995 that brought about a veritable turning-point and persuaded him to start collecting contemporary art. The collection convinces with its strong artists and concentrates on large-format photographic works investigating the thematic of landscape and architecture. In the Köpenicker Straße, in what used to be a jam factory perched on the banks of the river Spree, he has found the perfect space to show the collection.

FAHRBEREITSCHAFT

A work of Raoul de Keyser, purchased in 1988, was the starting point of the Haubrok Collection. Over the first few years, the collection’s focus was set on paintings. However, at the turn of the new millennium, works by Günter Förg, including photographies and sculptures, gradually put the emphasis on embracing conceptual arts – now focal point of the haubrok collection. Important artists, among others, are Jonathan Monk, Christopher Williams, Carol Bove and Wade Guyton. The latest interest of collecting can be seen in conceptual artists of the first generation. Some of the collection’s most important works were transferred to the Haubrok Foundation in 2008.

In contrast to the Dutch old masters, the contemporary collection is not restricted to a specific region.

In 2004 he started collecting contemporary art in all media.
