... Concept has never meant horse.
Exhibtion Duration: 15 September - 17 December 2006

With ...CONCEPT HAS NEVER MEANT HORSE, opening on September 14, 2006, the Generali Foundation is showing the third in a series of exhibitions on themes of the Generali Foundation Collection

After two exhibitions displaying specific aspects of the Collection—COLLECTED VIEWS FROM EAST OR WEST, in 2004, and HOW SOCIETY AND POLITICS GET IN THE PICTURE, in 2005—the present exhibitions addresses questions concerning Conceptual art. Its title is taken from "Achtung!", a text by French Conceptual art pioneer Daniel Buren, and is a reference to the contradictions that have characterized the discussions over Conceptual art since the 1960s.

In conjunction with its collection of art, the Generali Foundation has in recent years been acquiring historical art magazines, artists’ books, and other rare ephemera. Materials from this collection, otherwise accessible in the study room and only by appointment, will be made available to a wider audience in the reading zone, as will be the "Lesezimmer II" (Reading Room II) of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart. The displays in the reading zone were designed by Heimo Zobernig.
