The foundation


The Dr. Christiane Hackerodt Arts and Culture Foundation was founded in 2013 as a civil-law foundation based in the city of Hannover, Germany. It focuses on the promotion of and research into contemporary art from an international perspective, especially in relation to art from East (Asia) and West (Europe and the United States). The Dr. Christiane Hackerodt Arts and Culture Foundation supports and promotes visual artists, both emerging and established, who approach reality in new and creative ways. It regularly offers support to events and artists in the Hannover region, while additionally inspiring artistic and social discourse by supporting catalogues and exhibitions related to its own collection of international contemporary art. In 2019, the Foundation’s collection was exhibited at the Museo Communale d’Arte Moderna in Ascona; in 2021, it featured in the exhibition Emptiness and Form at the Dommuseum Hildesheim.

The Dr Chrsitiane Hackerodt Foundation was invited to exhibit three works by the artist Hermann Bartels from its collection as an intervention with works from the Gisela Sperling Collection. Bartel's paintings refer to the contemplative depth effect of his colour fields and landscapes and so inspire to an unusual visual context in the corresponding works.

Exhibitions

The Foundation’s remarkable art collection has been put together on the theme of Contemplation and Meditation in Contemporary Art. In 2019, the Foundation’s collection was exhibited at the Museo Communale d’Arte Moderne in Ascona and in 2021, in the exhibition Emptiness and Form at the Dommuseum Hildesheim. In 2024 it will be shown at the Osthaus-Museum in Hagen.

Collection

In a field marked by opposing poles of East and West, speed and deceleration, extroversion and inwardness, the Dr. Christiane Hackerodt Arts and Culture Foundation has chosen “meditation” and “contemplation” as twin concepts to describe how works in the collection are selected.
