In the Best of Company presents a selection of the Kupferstichkabinett’s most important acquisitions from the last 10 years – ranging from the Late Middle Ages to the current day. These include not just purchases made with the Kabinett’s own funds, but also donations, bequests, and a number of re-purchases of works that had been previously restituted.

Many important purchases are only made possible by support from third parties such as the Cultural Foundation of the German Federal States or the Ernst von Siemens Art Foundation. Not to be forgotten are the artist grants of the State of Berlin and the engagement of the Graphische Gesellschaft zu Berlin e. V., along with a great many private donors.

The exhibition does not just place a spotlight on individual new acquisitions and the circumstances of their acquisition, but also on points of connection within the collection, works with which the new arrivals enter into a dialogue – and with which they now find themselves in the best of company.

Supported by the Graphische Gesellschaft zu Berlin – Vereinigung der Freunde des Kupferstichkabinetts e. V.
