The Burger Collection is going public with the group exhibition Conflicting Tales. The temporary exhibition will feature works by more than 30 artists from the collection and is curated by Daniel Kurjakovic, curator and head of program. It will take place in Berlin from September 5 through December 13, 2009 (opening: September 4, 2009).

Conflicting Tales is the first of four planned exhibitions from the holdings of the Burger Collection. The show focuses on the issue of subjectivity. Three further exhibitions in coming years will probe the issues of narration, historicity, and language as they play out in the Burger Collection. The concept for the presentation of the Burger Collection foresees changing sites around the world for the exhibitions.

The Burger Collection is a private collection of contemporary art. Monique Burger and her husband, who started collecting art in the early 1990s, placed a great deal of personal commitment into building up a collection of international artists. The collection currently contains more than 1000 works. It includes paintings, drawings, and photography as well as sculpture, new media, film, and video.
