Selected artworks from the Hildebrand Collection are permanently on view at the G2 Kunsthalle. According to the collector`s idea to open his collection to the public, the G2 Kunsthalle presents parts of the Hildebrand Collection in changing installations and special exhibitions. This private collection´s personal character is defined by an individual passion for art collecting that emphasizes its essential difference in comparison to public museal institutions.
The private collection focuses on contemporary painting of the 21st century including drawings, prints, sculptures and other media objects. The collector and entrepreneur Steffen Hildebrand concentrates his collecting activity on the so-called New Leipzig School. The development of the art production in Leipzig after the turn of the millennium is represented through significant artworks and important group of works by established artists as well as by younger, emerging names. A second substantial nucleus of the collection consists of other national and international artistic movements.
