The Goethe Institute, in cooperation with the BMW Group and Kumu Art Museum, is bringing four works of art from the extraordinary BMW Art Car Collection to Estonia. The cars from the collection that will come to Tallinn were designed by Roy Lichtenstein, A. R. Penck, David Hockney and Jeff Koons.
The BMW Art Cars project was initiated in 1975, when the French auctioneer and race car driver Hervé Poulain succeeded in convincing Alexander Calder to take part in an unprecedented experiment. BMW put a 3.0 CSL race car at the disposal of Calder, and an ambitious symbiosis of art and top-quality design was born, which was revealed to the world at the 24 Hours at Le Mans race.
