The exhibition provides an initial look at new works by the renowned Düsseldorf photoartist, all of them created especially for this project and presented here alongside selected earlier works. In his recent works, Andreas Gursky explores the abstract potential of the photographic medium.

Permanent Presentation
K21 Ständehaus

The K21 Ständehaus is a very special venue for young international artists and for the contemporary portions of the permanent collection. Traversing three levels, 22 rooms offer visitors intensive encounters with painting, sculpture, photography, film, and in particular with spatially-oriented art. Selected contemporary artists are invited to display works for a period of one year, thereby engaging in dialogue  with other works in the collection. The result is a succession of varied spatial impressions that are representative of the richness and density of contemporary art, and which inspire the senses and challenge our perceptions in perpetually fresh ways.
