MKM MUSEUM KÜPPERSMÜHLE
FOR MODERN ART, DUISBURG

CURRENTLY ON SHOW

ERWIN WURM

until September 3, 2017

Joint exhibition with the Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg

The master of subversive irony and off-beat humour is now coming to the Ruhr region. In a joint exhibition, the MKM and the Lehmbruck Museum are showcasing works by the internationally acclaimed Austrian artist Erwin Wurm. The sculptures, photographs, murals, textile pieces and spatial installations combine to illustrate one thing: Wurm is celebrating chaos as a creative strategy. Transgressing boundaries with both humour and profundity, Wurm raises our expectations ad absurdum, and, in so doing, re-defines contemporary sculpture.

ABOUT THE MKM

The MKM is one of Germany’s leading private museums, located in the vibrant cultural district of Duisburg‘s famous inner harbour. Used for storing grain until the 1970s, the ”Küppersmühle“ has served as a centre for art since 1999 and is now one of the key cultural attractions across the Ruhr region. Boasting an historic brick facade, this former mill and storage silo was transformed by the world-renowned team of Basle-based architects Herzog & de Meuron into an art museum, providing currently some 3,600 sq.m. of exhibition space.

With the Ströher Collection, the MKM houses one of the most extensive collections of German post-war art, showcasing primarily paintings by the most influential artists dating from the 1950s to the present day. Among the artists featured in the Ströher Collection are: Georg Baselitz, K.O. Götz, Anselm Kiefer, Markus Lüpertz, A.R. Penck, Gerhard Richter, Bernard Schultze, Emil Schumacher, and many more.
