The Foundation Kurt Fried Collection

Since 1978, the collection of modern art has been significantly enriched: Kurt Fried (1906–1981), a collector, publicist and publisher from Ulm, endowed the museum with his first-rate art collection of approximately 300 works. From 1959 onwards, Kurt Fried regularly exhibited progressive art in his non-commercial gallery ‘studio f’, art that was not yet shown in German museums. He acquired works from most exhibitions and bought works by emerging international artists. His collection developed into a guide to the arts after 1945. The most important American and European art movements from the 1950s until the 1970s are documented by means of paintings, sculptures, objects and portfolios by renowned artists. The collection has later been augmented with works from the 1980s.
