The UniCredit collection is one of the largest corporate collections in Europe. It contains old masters like Canaletto and Dosso Dossi, classic modern art from artists such as Yves Klein and Giorgio de Chirico, and leading contemporary artists like Candida Höfer, Neo Rauch and Gerhard Richter as well as an excellent collection of historical and contemporary photography.
The catalogue Things are Queer presents for the first time a fascinating view of a selection of these masterpieces illustrating the diverse ways that things develop their own independent life and which become odder the closer the observer comes.
Artist include: Darren Almond, Georg Baselitz, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Tony Cragg, Giorgio de Chirico, Thomas Demand, Fischli / Weiss, Isa Genzken, Gilbert & George, Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Martin Kippenberger, Yves Klein, Fernand Léger, Giorgio Morandi, Sigmar Polke, Man Ray, Gerhard Richter, Kurt Schwitters, Roman Signer, Thomas Struth, William Henry Fox Talbot, Jean Tinguely, Francesco Vezzoli, Andy Warhol, and Erwin Wurm among others.
