The Sprengel Museum in Hannover, the kestnergesellschaft (Kestner Society) and the Kunstverein Hannover will present a joint exhibition featuring a large overview of recent works of contemporary art in Germany from 25 May to 26 August 2007. The exhibition will feature more than 50 artists - half German and half foreign descent - who belong to a new generation of fine artists currently living and working in Germany. The title Made in Germany reflects the basic concept of the exhibition which shifts the focus of artistic identity away from the artists' birthplaces and careers to the context of where the artworks were created. Based on this theme, the exhibition has been designed as a longer term project which will be the first of this size to view artistic activity in Germany as the result of mutual interaction.
