Through several narrative strands, the new presentation provides a refreshing access to art after 1945 which consciously enables an experience of the collection based not on chronology but rather on specific themes.

Almost a decade after the opening of the Garden Halls, the Collection of Contemporary Art of Städel Museum, Frankfurt is presented in a completely new way for the first time. Starting from the central space of the Garden Halls and beginning with significant works by the younger generation of contemporary artists, a history of art after 1945 unfolds. Works from various schools, styles, and groups facilitate surprising comparisons, perspectives, and visual axes between the immediate present and its roots in past decades.

Susa Templin’s series ‚Gartenstrasse 12 – 18h‚ which is part of the museum’s collection is on display in the exhibition curated by Dr. Svenja Grosser and Dr. Kristina Lemke.
