Harald Falckenberg collection
by Laurence Dreyfus

Over some ten years, Harald Falckenberg has put together a collection of some 3,000 works spanning the 1960s to the present day, in a 4,000 square-metre disused factory on the outskirts of Hamburg. The main of the collection gathers significant artwork ensembles for a same artist, which are constantly being expanded with no restrictions as to the chosen materials, media or formats. Through his choice of powerful, provocative and political works, Harald Falckenberg has become an established name at the forefront of Hamburg’s institutional and artistic scene, which he has considerably influenced and revived. The scope and ambition of his collection ranks him among the leading international art collectors.
