Artistic works found in the collection of a museum are sometimes not created (exclusively) for the institutional framework; some of them were intended for a wider audience, incorporate elements from popular everyday culture, aspire to influence the public and private sphere or even to be used by the public.

The exhibition Pass-Stücke shows works from the GfZK collection that explicitly address a broader public, encouraging their audience to engage in debate or take action. The contexts of their production and reception conditions are examined, and the question is raised as to whether or how they could be reactivated in the museum.

The entire collection of editions from Texte zur Kunst was donated by Arend and Brigitte Oetker to the Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst.
