With her unmistakable signature and exuberant imagination, Beate Kuhn
(1927–2015) is one of the most significant German ceramicists of the
war era. She turned to the liberal arts as early as the end of the 1950s.
In linking sculptural reasoning with the possibilities of the material and
inherent pottery techniques, the internationally renowned artist conquered
the frontiers of ceramic and created virtuosic works that went on
to form their own contribution to the history of modern sculpture.

With over 180 works from all her periods of creativity, the Mannheim
architect Klaus Freiberger was able to compile a collection unmatched
else in the world. In honour of its foundation at the Neue Sammlung,
the impressive oeuvre of Beate Kuhn is now being presented for the
first time in this comprehensive publication.

Beate Kuhn’s works are owned by leading museums worldwide, including the GRASSI
Museum of Applied Art Leipzig (DE), Hetjens-Museum, Düsseldorf (DE), Musée Ariana,
Geneva (CH), Museum Bellerive, Zurich (CH), Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen,
Rotterdam (NL), National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto (JP), Taipeh Fine Arts Museum
(TW), Victoria and Albert Museum, London (UK).

With essays by Josef Straßer, curator of design at Die Neue Sammlung – The Design
Museum in Munich.
