Albertinum Sammlung Hoffmann Dresden Berlin Collection SKD
STILL ALIVE, the first comprehensive presentation of the Schenkung Sammlung Hoffmann, may be understood as a response to these experiences. And, in fact, it coincides with the – hopefully lasting – reopening of the museums. But the decision to focus on the themes of fluidity, process, vitality and transience goes back well before the current crisis: it was set in motion through the act of the donation itself. When the Sammlung Hoffmann was gifted to the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden in 2018, it was not tied to a fixed exhibition venue, to its own building. Rather, the donated works were meant to enter into an ongoing exchange with all the collections of the SKD, thus making room for the dynamic nature of art, its openness and its simultaneous reliance on time and context....A ... focus is exemplified by artworks that give instability an artistic form and bring out the processual as a direct element in the work of art.
