A five-year process preceded the establishment of the Herbert Foundation. Since September 2008, the Collection was moved to the Foundation in different phases.
The Herbert Collection focuses on the international avant-garde between 1968 and 1989. Both dates mark the framework in which the Collection places itself ideologically and represents a social turning point: the student uprising of 1968 as a symbol of the belief in a malleable, utopian world and the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 marking the end of this period.
