Once again, "doors" open and a collector who does not want to be mentioned by name shows his very personal art collection in excerpts. Since his schooldays in the early 1960s, fascinated by the fine arts - he developed as a sensual man a collecting passion that embraced all genres of art as well as literature. His passion, he also speaks of "obsession", makes him become a profession in the course of his life - this is also how the title of the exhibition "Feeling Called Love" is based on the song of the punk band WIRE. In fifty Jahrs of collecting, this bibliophile art enthusiast has compiled a subjective collection that encompasses art, literature, and aesthetic curios and reads like a self-portrait. Shrill, provocative, enigmatic, but also very quiet artistic formulations can be found in this lifework, which is characterized by a gentle melancholy, independent of stylistic categories and media.
