Hall Art Foundation

Originally a fortified castle, the history of Schloss Derneburg, which is situated near Hannover, stretches back almost one thousand years. For several centuries a monastery, then a residence for the Anglo-Hanoverian Munster family, since 1976 the current Schloss was the home and studio of artist, Georg Baselitz until its sale in 2006. Since then, and in cooperation with the Schloss Derneburg Museum gGmbH, the Schloss has been reunited with the adjacent domain and both have undergone extensive renovations to become a public museum space for the Hall Art Foundation.

The current program of exhibitions includes solo presentations of work by Antony Gormley, Barry Le Va, Malcolm Morley, Hermann Nitsch and Julian Schnabel, alongside The Truth of Uncertainty: Moving Image Works from the Hall Collection, a group show of cinematic works curated by Chrissie Iles addressing issues of immigration, war, borders and perceptions of social and architectural space, and Für Barbara, an exhibition of paintings, sculpture, photographs and works on paper by female artists curated by Leo Koenig in honor of recently deceased gallerist Barbara Weiss, a lifelong advocate for women in the arts.
