The LBBW art collection dates back to the year 1971. The focus of the collection was initially on art from the Stuttgart and Baden-Württemberg region. At the beginning of the 1990s, the collection was expanded to include international positions. The foundation of LBBW and its development promoted the growth of the collection. “Collecting Contemporary” is the keyword today. The orientation and history of the LBBW collection show parallels to the collection of the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. On the occasion of the LBBW anniversary and the long-standing cooperation with the art museum, outstanding works will be on display from all areas of the LBBW collection.

André Butzer


For the collaboration with Celine, André Butzer’s character “Wanderer”, (2001) has been taken from the artist’s sketchbooks, lithographs and linoleum prints. Although the figure is in black and white, it is about colour and the potential for colour. This character from Butzer’s universe has been adapted onto various products across the range including embroidered black cotton thread onto raffia baskets, printed in black and white onto grained leather and featured as an artwork patch onto t-shirts and high-top sneakers.
