BERLIN.- The Haubrok Foundation has generously presented to the National Gallery over 13 important works as permanent loans by internationally acclaimed artists of the present day. To mark their presentation, the work 'This is Propaganda’ (2002) by Berlin-based artist Tino Sehgal is on display in the Alte Nationalgalerie from 9 November to 19 December 2010.

The permanent loans, which often take up the entire space in which they are installed, include works by artists such as Martin Creed, Olafur Eliasson, Paola Pivi, Tobias Rehberger, Gregor Schneider and Tino Sehgal. They will now be duly incorporated into the various collections of the National Gallery in such a way as to complement existing holdings. The body of works form the heart of the Haubrok Collection and were transferred to the hands of the Haubrok Foundation by Barbara and Axel Haubrok to ensure that, for the good of their collection, they remain unseparated for years to come.

By presenting 13 key works from their collection to the National Gallery, Barbara and Axel Haubrok aim to make them accessible to a wider public in the long term. According to the agreement, the works will be permanently housed in the National Gallery’s collection.

A work of Raoul de Keyser, purchased in 1988, was the starting point of the Haubrok collection. During the following years the collectors put our emphasis on collecting more paintings. However, at the beginning of the new millenium the works of Günter Förg, which included photographies and sculptures, gradually led them to embracing conceptual arts - now the focal point of the Haubrok collection.

Today the Haubrok collection includes more than 500 works. Among others, Jonathan Monk, Christopher Williams, Heimo Zobernig, Peter Piller, Martin Boyce, Carol Bové and Wade Guyton can be considered as some of the most important artists featured in the haubrokshows. In 2008 the collection transferred ten of their most important works - the heart of the Haubrok collection - into a charitable foundation. It now includes Gregor Schneider's "Das Schlafzimmer", the "Brancusi Raum" by Tobias Rehberger, "This is Propaganda" by Tino Sehgal and Andreas Slominski's "Hundemassenfang"

In 2002 the collection went on public display for the very first time during an exhibition with the title "no return" in Mönchengladbach's Museum Abteiberg. In 2007 selected political works of the collection became part of an exhibition in Düsseldorf's Museum KunstPalast in the context of the project "Die Kunst zum Sammeln".

Since 2005 the collection hosts regular exhibtions of various works of the Haubrok collection in Berlin. Initially those took place in theirr apartment in the Xanthener Straße, but in the spring of 2007 they moved to a showroom at the Strausberger Platz 19. At this venue they organise up to four exhibtions annually.
