The internationally renowned art gallery in Tübingen was founded in the 1970‘s under the leadership of Götz Adriani. The single-story building with excellent light was designed and built in memory of the painter Friedrich Zundel.
The alternation between classically modern and contemporary art, alongside a high quality demand, was back then, as it is today, an essential aspect of their programme. The works of famous contemporary artists were often displayed in this art gallery in the early stages of their internationally successful careers, for instance the works of Franz Erhard Walter, George Segal, Ulrich Rückriem, Joseph Beuys, Richard Hamilton, Claes Oldenburg, Sigmar Polke, Frank Stella or Richard Serra. The sophisticated exhibits, particularly in the 1980’s and 90’s under the direction of Professor Dr. Götz Adriani, have gained the gallery international recognition. The monographic exhibitions aroused an extraordinary public interest in the great pioneers of modernity, such as Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Auguste Renoir, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso and Henri Rousseau.
