For the first time, 150 works from the very valuable Pisces Collection will be exhibited in Donaueschingen to the international public. The Pisces Collection of contemporary art is continually being expanded, with the emphasis on plastic arts, painting and photography of the eighties and nineties. The collection contains works by John M Armleder, Ross Bleckner, George Condo, Wim Delvoye, Fischli & Weiss, Sylvie Fleury, Andreas Gursky, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Paul McCarthy, Mariko Mori, Jack Pierson, Richard Prince, Ugo Rondinone, Thomas Ruff, David Salle, Cindy Sherman, Thomas Struth, Rosemarie Trockel, Franz West and Christopher Wool. Among the major works produced in the eighties from the Pisces Collection are a work by Richard Prince entitled My Name and Jeff Koons' Encased Five Rows. The nineties are represented by a superb collection of photographs. Cibachrome prints by Cindy Sherman and Andreas Gursky, alongside highlights such as Thomas Struths' Paradise 2 (Pilgrim Sands). Damien Hirst's Something solid beneath the surface of several creatures great and small, a work created in the year 2000, uses live and dead animals as artistic material and caused a stir in the art world and beyond. Exhibition Schedule: Fürstenberg Sammlungen, Donaueschingen June 2002 - October 2004
