Deichtorhallen Hamburg – Falckenberg Collection

  • vergrößern © Deichtorhallen

    The artistic activities of the collector Harald Falckenberg have had a decisive influence on the climate of contemporary art in Hamburg in the past 15 years. Since 2001, the Falckenberg Collection has been based at Phoenix-Hallen in Hamburg’s Harburg district. In 2007, Harald Falckenberg acquired one of the buildings and had Berlin-based architect Roger Bundschuh convert it into a spacious exhibition space for his collection.

    The new hall opened in May 2008 and by 2010 had hosted 28 exhibitions, featuring artists such as Paul Thek, Jon Kessler and Robert Wilson, not to mention themed shows and presentations of the collection. The extensive rooms facilitate major installations and multimedia projects by artists such as John Bock, General Idea, Thomas Hirschhorn, Mike Kelley, Jon Kessler, Jonathan Meese, and Gregor Schneider.

    Since January 2011, the Phoenix-Hallen has come under the organisational umbrella of Deichtorhallen Hamburg GmbH and is now operated under the name of "Deichtorhallen Hamburg – Falckenberg Collection". Under the direction of Artistic Director Dr Dirk Luckow, the established exhibition policy for the Falckenberg Collection will be continued and new aspects will be added.
