The collection

We live with our art. It is an integral part of our daily life with children and dog. The art  we have acquired is a timeline of our life. We know for each work we have bought when, where and in which phase of our life. We do not pursue a curatorial master plan. Nor do we have the claim that our visitors should like it. We invite them to a private view. And those who get involved may discover something new for themselves.

The passion of collecting art began almost 18 years ago. In the meantime, more than 150 mainly contemporary works came together. In addition to paintings and drawings, the collection includes videos, light installations, photographs and sculptures. The collection comprises following focal points:

  • Photorealistic painting
  • Contemporary Op-Art
  • The search for identity in photography
  • Architecture in the arts
  • Art historical models thought further ahead

There is no separate exhibition space. However, individual works are exhibited on various occasions in solo exhibitions organized by the ROCCA Foundation or within the framework of group exhibitions internationally.

The following artists are part of the collection besides others:

Alexandra Birken, Peppi Bottrop, Matti Braun, Jose Dávila, Philippe Decrauzat, Iris van Dongen, Slawomir Elsner, Franz Ehrlich, Noa Gur, Eberhard Havekost, Carmen Herrera, Thilo Heinzmann, Gregor Hildebrandt, Stefan Hirsig, Thoralf Knobloch, Leigh Ledare, Daniel Lergon, Johanna von Monkiewitsch, Gerold Miller, Charlotte Posenenske, Kirstine Roepstorff, Albrecht Schnider, Daniel Silver, Ignacio Uriarte.
