Art tour.

Experience the fascinating dialogue between engineering art and fine art. Art historians from the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection will accompany you through the special exhibition "Moving in Stereo". On display are 150 works from 130 years of art history: from the southwest German classics Willi Baumeister, Adolf Hölzel, and Oskar Schlemmer to young international artists such as Clément Cogitore, Alia Farid, Cao Fei and Haris Epaminonda.  The media spectrum ranges from painting, drawing, sculpture and light objects to photography, installation and video. Works with musical aspects and commissioned works related to the automobile are also included. A highlight is the mobile and sounding large sculpture “Meta-Maxi” by the Swiss artist Jean Tinguely (1925 to 1991) from 1986.
