The Shop: Books, Art and Pretty Things

The artworks, the atmosphere, the joy, the interesting and the special can also be taken home – on paper. In close cooperation with the respective artist, we produce elaborate catalogs and artist books, which are as individual in form and content as the corresponding artworks themselves. You can find more details about the layout, authors and texts below under the individual title.
In keeping with the Municipal Art Collection, which specializes in multiplied art, some artists also produce graphics or multiples so that we can offer them to visitors to Kunstpalais. So far, one of a kind 3D-printed sculptures by Florian Meisenberg, a cap with LED lights by Alona Rodeh, and prints by Grace Weaver and Vivian Greven are available here.
People who like art also like to surround themselves with beautiful things, as we know from our own experience. That’s exactly the reason why Kunstpalais has a curator-curated museum store with jazzy, eye-catching, unconventional things that we’d like to own ourselves or would love to give as gifts: Jewelry made from laser-cut Plexiglas or crocheted yarn from Japan, England, and Australia, fine leather cooking aprons from the Netherlands, plant planets and gem galaxies from Denmark, special pieces of tableware and vases from ancient times – and whatever else we are able to find.
Our books, prints, and multiples can also be ordered online; everything else can be found exclusively on our store shelves in Kunstpalais until further notice. For urgent repeat orders or desires awakened via our Instagram account – we will gladly try to send you these things as well. 
Purchases with a value of up to 100 EUR will be sent to you on account within Germany. For purchase values over 100 EUR we send the good immediately after receipt of a proof of payment.
Greatest Hits. The Best of the ʼ60s, ʼ70s, ʼ80s, and Today – from the Municipal Collection Erlangen
This catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Greatest Hits. The Best of the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, and Today—From the Municipal Art Collection of Erlangen at Kunstpalais, Erlangen from November 26, 2017 until February 11, 2018.

Since the 1970s the City of Erlangen has been collecting contemporary art. The focus is set on graphics, multiples, and artists’ books, but there are also photographs, objects, and video works. More than 4,500 works by several hundred artists are part of the Municipal Art Collection – and it continues to grow every year! Pop art, op art, minimal art, or concept art – all major art movements from the post-war era until today are being represented in Erlangen. With the exhibition Greatest Hits, Kunstpalais presents the best of its collection: personal favorites, many long runners, but also works of yet unknown newcomers. The art pieces are arranged like songs on a mixtape – not in a chronological order or organized according to genre, but freely and associatively. 


Here is what we were thinking: What goes well together and what complements each other? Additionally: What generates interesting disruptions? Unlike music that you can simply enjoy, even if you do not understand the lyrics, it is harder to relax and indulge in art. However, art does not have to be understood first in order to enjoy it. So why not visit an exhibition as if you were at a concert or at a party? 

This large format catalog shows all exhibited objects and work series. The introductory essay by Amely Deiss is an appeal for more passion when viewing art.
