It's a very small museum on the top floor of a building ( I didn't see lifts, but the website says it's accessible to wheelchair users).
I don't think it was worth navigating in the rain just to find the place, but on a dry day, the centre would provide some profound topics for discussion. 'Otto Weidt's Workshop for the Blind' is in the same alley should be of any interest.
I'm sorry, the fancy building and immense gallery space took my breath away. I didn't jot down any names.
I'm sure you can look them up on their site. Click on the link to their website above.
The building is on the same road as the German Historical Museum, after the bridge. It took me like 40 minutes to find it. Taxi drivers don't know anything.
This one is my favourite piece. But it's not actually from the CFA. This was photographed the day before at the Art Basel fair by German artist Georg Herold. ( click here to read my blog about it if you haven't already)
Each yellowing dot that you see is actually an expensive crumb of caviar fixed under resin. Yuck.
The one at the CFA was similar to this one, quite abstract and disorderly in its content, but provocative and meticulous in its process.

Herold is famous for his caviar paintings. Whether it's to depict faces of popular figures, distorted landscapes or abstraction, the painstaking numbering of each egg gives another layer of meaning. Had caviar eggs alone symbolised wealth or an unborne soul - marking, categorising and individualising each one throws esoteric questions at a baffled audience. The puniness or greatness of a soul? The frivolous pursuit for innumerable wealth?
