The complex, recent history of the notion of “Arabicity” (the literal translation of “ourouba”) serve as the common thread for the selected works, which bear witness to the diverse paths and inspirations of artists from the Arab world.

BRING ART INTO LIFE! THE COLLECTOR WOLFGANG HAHN AND THE ’60S

In the 1960s, the Rhineland was an important center for a revolutionary occurrence in art: a new generation of artists with international networks rebelled against traditional art. They used everyday life as their source of inspiration and everyday objects as their material. They went out into their urban surroundings, challenging the limits of the art disciplines and collaborating with musicians, writers, filmmakers, and dancers. In touch with the latest trends of this exciting period, the Cologne painting restorer Wolfgang Hahn (1924–1987) began acquiring this new art and created a multifaceted collection of works of Nouveau Réalisme, Fluxus, Happening, Pop Art, and Conceptual Art.
