The Walther Collection
The Walther Collection is a private international art collection specializing in contemporary photography and video art.
The exhibition campus near Ulm was established in 2010 by the collector Artur Walther, who grew up in Neu-Ulm and now lives in New York. A focus of the collection is on contemporary and historical artists from Africa and Asia, whose works significantly expand the understanding, conception, and history of photography. In addition, the Walther Collection collects selected examples of modern and contemporary European and American photography. Exhibitions and publications contextualize the artists represented in the collection and make them accessible to a broader audience.
In addition to the location near Ulm, which comprises several buildings, the Walther Collection operates a project space in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood. With a new exhibition every three months, Project Space NY extends the Neu-Ulm program to include previews and retrospectives.
