With the Kunstraum Grässlin and the Räume für Kunst in St. Georgen in the Black Forest, the Grässlin Foundation opened a new form of collector’s museum in June 2006. “In the field of contemporary art, a series of notable private collections has emerged over the past few years that quite characteristically reflects the direct contact of the collectors with the artists and their art works.The Grässlin family belongs to this circle of ambitious collectors. Unlike other private collections, the Grässlin collection can be seen rather as a group venture, a type of collective, comprising the five family members – Anna, Bärbel, Thomas, Sabine and Karola Grässlin – and reflecting the individual positions of those involved.
