Art & Coal
Homage to Jannis Kounellis
at the MKM Museum Küppersmühle in Duisburg
On June 11, NRW’s Prime Minister Armin Laschet opened the new exhibition at the MKM: Art & Coal – Homage to Jannis Kounellis. The exhibition focuses on Jannis Kounellis, pioneer of Arte Povera, with his expansive installations of coal, steel and iron. In homage to Kounellis, who died in 2017, Ayşe Erkmen, Anselm Kiefer, Michael Sailstorfer, Sun Xun, Timm Ulrichs and Bernar Venet stage their own spaces in which they celebrate industrial materials.
In addition to Armin Laschet, Chairman of the Brost Foundation, Wolfgang Heit, curator of the exhibition, Ferdinand Ullrich, and Walter Smerling, Director of the MKM Museum Küppersmühle für Moderne Kunst, spoke at the opening.
