50 Years - Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7

05.03.2023 – 17.03.2024, Annex

The 911 with the ducktail

Porsche is celebrating 50 years of the 911 Carrera RS 2.7. We are taking this as an opportunity to show three special models of this type in our annex.

This particular car, also known as the Revoluzzer, was designed in 1973 as a homologation model for FIA Group 3 and 4. With 210 hp and a total weight of 960 kg, this sports car accelerated from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds at the time.

The hitherto purist body shape of the 911 was given a specially shaped rear spoiler for this purpose, which became known as the "ducktail".

Currently on display in our showroom:

  • a viper-green Porsche RS in the comfort version with the M472 touring package
  • a light-yellow Porsche RS in the wide version with the rare sports package M471
  • a grandprix-white Porsche RSR in the racing version M491 with 2.8 litre racing engine and approx. 290 hp

We are looking forward to your visit!


Chevrolet Corvette - The american sports car icon

22.03.2024 – 23.03.2025, Annex

In 1953, the American car giant surprised its customers with the first US sports car. The Corvette was a very sporty two-seater with a fibreglass-reinforced body and a simple fabric roof. A novelty for the car world and still something special for experts today.

The models exhibited can be categorised as follows:

  • the red Corvette is the original model built in 1954 with the 6-cylinder Blue Flame 150 engine
  • the black Corvette from 1957 already had the legendary Chevy 8-cylinder small-block engine with approx. 250 hp and a 4-speed manual gearbox - both a novelty for the US market
  • the white Corvette from 1972 was part of the C3 Stingray model series and is also known among insiders as the "Coke Bottle" due to its unique body shape

The Corvette series is still produced by General Motors today, but now as a very modern mid-engined sports car.

JÖRG BACH + JAKOB LEANDER BACH

23.10.2022 – 26.02.2023, in the 2-Raum, Annex

With Jörg Bach (*1964), we have a regional artist who also enjoys international renown as our guest in the 2-Raum.

Bach works with a material that requires consummate craftsmanship and the use of machines and tools such as welding equipment, burnishers, hammers, pliers and clamps. His sculptures create three-dimensional space and offer intriguing views through and beyond the works. The artist is concerned with the essence of humanity; with his own thoughts and feelings and his relationship with himself and others.

Jakob Leander Bach (*1990), son of Jörg Bach, works at the interface of art, design and craft. He is particularly fascinated by the material qualities of silver. Jakob Leander Bach mostly creates one-of-a-kind pieces. His objects look raw and robust; they recall natural forms such as rock formations or ice floes.

The unknown wants to be discovered, and perhaps it is the task of the artist to approach what he does not suspect.

I want my works to be like natural finds turned into silver.

Pierre Soulages

18.02.2018 – 11.10.2020, Annex

Museum Art.Plus is presenting a a selection of works by the French painter Pierre Soulages (*1919 Rodez, FR) in its modern extension.

Soulages one of the leading international abstract artists and one of the last living members of a generation that redefined modern art after the end of the Second World War. The colour black has always been central to his creative practice.

Pour moi, le noir, c'est un excès, une passion. For me, black is an excess, a passion,' the artist sums up his obsession with his favourite colour.

Pierre Soulages

Since the end of the 1970s, Soulages has been painting only monochrome black canvases. He refers to them as ‘Outrenoirs' (beyond black). Their densely impastoed, surfaces - part glossy, part matte - are structured and enlivened by deep diagonal, vertical and horizontal lines and furrows. The way these enter into a fascinating and ever-changing dialogue with the light bears out the artist's contention that for him black is a colour of light.
