The collection of the former gallery owner and collector Rolf Ricke has its focus on the American post-minimalism and conceptual art. Since the 1960ies, the collection has been built up in close contact to the artists from the New York art scene. It was not only pathbreaking for the reception of American contemporary art in Europe, but also includes a great number of important art history positions. Included in this are works of Keith Sonnier, Gary Kuehn and Richard Serra as well as works of the next-generation artists. In 2006, the MMK was able to acquire the collection together with the Art Museums of Liechtenstein and St. Gallen. In many positions it ties in with the existing collection and enriches it with diverse new references.
