The continuously contouring art collection from Independent Collectors’ co-founder Christian Kaspar Schwarm has found a temporary home located in Bremen’s Weserburg Museum.
Presenting his collection to the wider public for the first time, “The Vague Space” contains artworks of media-transcending positions with high political aspirations, as well as installations and video works that demand attention from all the senses.
It is the eagerness to contemplate, challenge and experiment that lies at the very core of Christian’s collecting habits, and his relationships with the artists that form the collection function as gateways, which continuously expand and develop his understanding of the world.
The collection is multi-dimensional with no focus falling on one medium in particular, creating the freedom for Christian to play and learn whilst pursuing his own path of collecting. Whilst there may not be a particular focus on a specific medium, it is clear that the artworks which speak to him are, without any exceptions, works of contemporary art. Featured artists from the collection include Nina Canell, Slavs and Tatars, Michael E. Smith, David Horvitz, Karin Sander, and Jonathan Monk.
As part four of the Weserburg’s “Young Collectors” series, we present images from Christian’s exhibition “The Vague Space”.
