For more than four decades Ann and Jürgen Wilde have been compiling their unique collection of modern and contemporary photography, which has been affiliated with the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen since 2010, as the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation. Works by photographers like Aenne Biermann, Florence Henri, and Germaine Krull lie at the collection’s core. The program at Galerie Wilde (1972–1985), which was the only gallery in Germany to specialize in photography at the time of its founding, was also innovative for including female photographers, among them Jan Groover, Marcia Resnick, Gwenn Thomas, and Deborah Turbeville. To this day, Ann Wilde remains particularly interested in promoting and acquiring work made by female artists and photographers. On the occasion of her birthday, the donor is opening her private collection to the public for the first time. Re-visions presents photographs that speak to Ann Wilde personally: work from the 1920s up to the present, made by artists like Johanna Diehl, Rineke Dijkstra, Marie Jo Lafontaine, Barbara Probst, Alexandra Ranner, Judith Joy Ross, Martina Sauter, Eva-Maria Schön, Kathrin Sonntag, and Heidi Specker.

The Michael & Eleonore Stoffel Foundation has worked in close collaboration with the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen to acquire on behalf of the latter institution five works by Anselm Kiefer. The acquisition marks a milestone in the development of the collection. Anselm Kiefer has created a body of work that broke the silence surrounding the German past in the Third Reich, while also finding a poignant language for articulating the global intertwinement of human civilization. He delves deep into old Christian, Kabbalistic, and Far Eastern traditions, explores the world’s great mythical, religious, and poetic texts, and forges links between them and the world as it is experienced today. The monumental painting “Der Sand aus den Urnen” (2009) and the two large wall pieces transferred onto lead in 2011 and entitled “OCCUPATIONS” (1969/2011) as well as the two display cases “Die 12 Stämme“ (2010) and “Morgenthau” (2016) will now form an additional highlight in the collection profile at the Pinakothek der Moderne.
