NEWS

+++ FINAL CONSTRUCTION WORKS ON THE EXTENSION BUILDING +++
+++ VIRTUALLY OPENED:
HANNE DARBOVEN +++

Dear visitors,

The permanent collection at the MKM will stay closed due to the final construction works on the new extension building.

The Corona pandemic caused some delays. The opening of the extension building is now planned for March 2021. We will keep you informed in due course.

The current temporary exhibition is dedicated to four comprehensive work cylces of Hanne Darboven. Virtually, it is opened already – so have a look at our digital tours. As soon as the protective measures in order to avoid a further spread of the coronavirus allow its “real” opening, we’ll let you know.

We look forward to welcoming you soon again!

In the meantime, we’d be happy if you’d follow us on our social media channels.

Stay save and sound,

Your team of the MKM
and the Foundation for Art and Culture

CURRENT EXHIBITION

HANNE DARBOVEN – THE RAINMAKER

+++ Virtually Opened +++

The MKM is dedicating a solo exhibition to conceptual art icon Hanne Darboven (1941–2009). On show are four major work cycles from the Ströher Collection, comprising some 2,000 individual works and easily filling the 6 meter high walls of the MKM.
They are exemplary of Hanne Darboven’s thought and work, whose centre is the writing and making visible of time as a possibility of experiencing and coping with reality. Her serial sequences of sheets become a physically tangible storage medium for time, current events and her own biography.

TV moderator Claudia Kleinert has virtually opened “The Rainmaker” together with MKM director Walter Smerling, who curated the Darboven exhibition. They will take you on a first digital tour through the work of the artist. An interview with art historian Klaus Honnef is included also.
