The internationally acclaimed Scottish artist Douglas Gordon (*1966) presents his striking, largescale video installation "k.364", 2010 in the Grabbe Halle of the K20. In this 50-minute work, which is projected onto a pair of two-sided screens, the artist follows two Israeli musicians of Polish-Jewish heritage on their journey by train from Berlin to Warsaw, where they are scheduled to perform Mozart’s "Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola, and Orchestra in E flat Major, KV 364" in the National Philharmonic.

Tomás Saraceno - in orbit

Permanent installation
K21 Ständehaus

Suspended more than 25 meters above the piazza of the K21 is Tomás Saraceno‘s gigantic installation in orbit. This steel wire construction spans the museum‘s vast glass cupola on three different levels. Positioned within this net structure, which encompasses altogether 2500 m², are half a dozen „spheres“ – inflated spheres having diameters up to 8.5 meters. Visitors have access to this transparent installation, and can move freely between the spheres on all three levels.
