Planet 58.
Graduates of the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf 2018

8 February – 31 March, 2019

The exhibition at the K21 features artworks by approximately 60 recent graduates of the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf (Düsseldorf Art Academy). All of the participating artists concluded their studies at the renowned art academy in 2018, and now present their works – paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, graphics, videos, and performances – in a museum context. The title of the exhibition is borrowed from a work by one of the contributing artists. "Planet 58" plays with conceptions of the unexplored, the prospective, calling attention to the transition between the study years and an independent artistic career. For the museum as well, "Planet 58" represents uncharted territory: never before has it opened up its spaces to young artists on this scale, with the aim of providing them with a platform, and of offering the public a glimpse of current artistic developments in Düsseldorf.

In cooperation with the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
