K21 Permanent Collection
K21 is open at the museum of contemporary art of the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen.
The presentation of the permanent collection in the 2nd and 3rd stories will feature works from the late 1980s onward (Marina Abramović, Paul McCarthy, Katharina Fritsch, Robert Gober, Maria Lassnig, Rosemarie Trockel, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Schütte, Wael Shawky, Ana Torfs, Akram Zaatari and many others).
Following comprehensive restoration, Reinhard Mucha’s pivotal work "Das Deutschlandgerät" (The Germany Device) will be on view again, while the bel etage will be the setting for temporary exhibitions.
The 1rst upper storey will become a public space dedicated to immersion and exchange.
Among other things, the Dorothee and Konrad Fischer Archive will be installed here on a permanent basis.
Still in place below the cupola is Tomás Saraceno’s installation work "in orbit".
