10 years me Collectors Room Berlin: This anniversary will be celebrated from 29 February to 17 May 2020 with an exhibition that takes a highly personal look into both, the activities of the foundation and the Olbricht Collection.

Flows of energy pass through us, moving us, our world, and everything in our universe. Thomas Olbricht has often also described his experience and life with art as a flow of energy that he likes to share with as many people as possible. Our art space in fact took its name after this wish of his: moving energies – me Collectors Room Berlin.

MOVING ENERGIES, or energy flows resulting from the interplay of diverse objects, genres and epochs, also characterize the eclecticism of the Olbricht Collection. Exhibits, which include model fire engines, Art Nouveau objects, romantic landscape paintings, designer furniture, African wood sculptures, stamps, globes and Old Masters still life paintings as well as the Renaissance and Baroque objects of the Wunderkammer and, above all, Contemporary Art. These objects are united in the collector’s private rooms. French Art Nouveau vases are grouped before of a romantic sunset painting by Carl Robert Kummer; Ewald Mataré’s sculptures are bundled on the shelf next to an abstract colour explosion by Katharina Grosse; and Baroque carved objects are presented against the backdrop of a black and white film still by Cindy Sherman. Some of these seemingly idiosyncratic compositions make up the collector’s highly subjective universe.
