Graduate students visited the exhibition “Breathing Water, Drinking Air” at Philara, a private collection of contemporary art comprising more than 1,800 works in genres such as painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, and video.

To demonstrate its wide range and diverse points of interconnection that stem from the exuberance and asymmetrical directions of a passion for collecting, works are juxtaposed in new correlations and with a specific theme. It engages with reflection within and on nature, and the hierarchization of humanity and nature.

In the mid-1900s, Gil Bronner began to build his collection, which, with its strong connection to the Düsseldorf Art Academy, has set itself the task of promoting local emerging artists.
