20 years of the Herbert Gerisch Foundation
A success story to be celebrated with the exhibition OUTSIDEINSIDE.

With more than 200 exhibits, spectacular new acquisitions, donations and loans, the Foundation's collection of the 38 artists represented in the park is presented in all exhibition areas.

Starting with the café rooms and the well-known exhibition area on the upper floor of the Villa Wachholtz, through the coach house, the red bungalow, the gallery, the peacock house and on to the private areas with the basement and the residential house, further supplementary paintings, small sculptures, installations, drawings and photos provide in-depth insights into the work of the Gerisch-Park artists' community.

Already in the hallway of the Villa Wachholtz, we are greeted by the new bronze work "Osiel" by artist Magdalena Abakanowicz and three dazzlingly coloured balloons by artist Jeppe Hein. In the café rooms, we gain a cross-sectional view of the exhibition "Trasher Island" by Thorsten Brinkmann.

The pioneering artists Menashe Kadishman, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Abraham David Christian, Pit Kroke, Norbert Prangenberg and the artist duo Anne and Patrick Poirier as well as Horst Antes and Via Lewandowsky impressively fill the exhibition rooms on the upper floor of the villa.

Katsuhito Nishikawa, the Japanese artist of our cloverleaf, will set up his group of works in the coach house, while Tjorg Douglas Beer will present his works in the red bungalow.

The other works of the 20 artists, some of whom have only a few complementary works, share the gallery spaces. They include Chiara Dynys, Bernd Kastner, Brigitte Kowanz, Stefan Sous, Mischa Kuball, Thorsten Goldberg, Birgit Ramsauer, Heinz Breloh, Bogomir Ecker, Carsten Höller, Olaf Nicolai, Morio Nishimura, Ulrich Behl, Tina Schwichtenberg, Jörg Plickat, Manfred Sihle-Wissel, Mimmo Paladino, Thomas Judisch, Ian Hamilton Finlay and Markus Lüpertz.

In the private section, Manolo Valdés, Jan Koblasa, Philine Fahl and the Hans Martin Ruwoldt Collection are on display.

In the basement and on the outdoor terrace, the Thomas Stimm donation is presented, and the newly restored peacock house is dedicated to the work of Japanese artist Leiko Ikemura.

And quite excitingly, this exhibition marks the new outdoor installation "Skulpturenbrüter" by performance artist Birgit Ramsauer, who, together with Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg, has designed 31 bird houses for the park in the colour palette after Johannes Itten.
