The George Economou Collection

The George Economou Collection is a private collection located in Athens, Greece.

The George Economou Collection is a private collection located in Athens, Greece. Rooted in history, social awareness and aesthetics, the collecting activity began evolving in the 1990s with a focus on early twentieth-century European art and has expanded to include an important holding of postwar and contemporary art. Central movements of the early twentieth century such as German Expressionism and New Objectivity are collected in depth. Unique to the collection is the complete graphic oeuvre of Otto Dix and Otto Mueller. Works by artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz, Andreas Gursky and Neo Rauch continue the German dialogue into the contemporary sphere alongside works by noted international artists such as Agnes Martin, Ellsworth Kelly, Cady Noland and Jenny Saville. With a desire to share the creativity of the artists represented in the collection, the George Economou Collection organizes two to three exhibitions per year in the space in Athens and collaborates regularly with international insti- tutions and curators. Reflecting the interest for socio-cultural awareness and the historical dialogue, these projects aim to create new opportunities for the public in Greece and abroad to engage with art.
