This collection was put together by collector and curator Jobst Graeve over the course of the last 40 years, and has a particular focus on the turbulent socio-political situation in Ireland and Northern Ireland throughout the 1980s.
Jobst Graeve began collecting art in his native Germany before moving to Ireland in the mid-1980's and beginning his collection of Irish art. He has curated many exhibitions and projects with artist in a long and varied career, and was curator of the award-winning exhibition, "In State" at Kilmainham Jail in 1991.
