In the series “Open Stores”, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart invites artists to work with its collection. The series takes its starting points from the works and areas of the collection held in the stores and archives of the museum—usually closed to the public—and from a discussion of the store itself as a place of conservation and categorisation. Open Stores shows what has never been shown, what is rarely or not currently exhibited. From contemporary artistic and curatorial perspectives it activates the contents of the extensive collection and archives of the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart.
