The HGN Collection

The col­lec­tion sums up what its owner stands for: from his count­less trav­els, world cit­i­zen Professor Hans Georg Näder has car­ried home works bear­ing an el­o­quent tes­ti­mo­ny to his pas­sion for art spanning the last 25 plus years. Näder is at home in art­ists’ studios and gal­leries around the globe, usu­ally walk­ing off the beat­en track and more often than not making long-time friends among their owners.

Con­tem­po­rary Cuban art is a par­tic­u­lar pas­sion which he sup­ports with his heart and soul, for in­stance by act­ing as a go-between for art­ists and cu­ra­tors or gal­lery owners, wheth­er in the con­text of ver­nis­sages, art­ists’ res­i­den­cies in Germany or in the studios of the Cuban me­trop­o­lis of Havana.

Over and above Cuban art, the ever-growing col­lec­tion now com­prises more than 1,300 ex­hib­its, boasting works by Norbert Bisky, Martin Kippenberger, Helmut Newton, Neo Rauch, Sigmar Polke, and Andy Warhol. As di­verse as the art­ists’ names is the spec­trum of their work cov­er­ing pho­tog­ra­phy, paint­ing, sculp­tures, in­stal­la­tions, time-based media and more.
