Since 2010, the K21 has served as a forum for international artists and a venue for contemporary works from the collection. Intensive encounters with space-specificart are offered by 22 continuously changing rooms which are distributed throughout three levels. Selected contemporary artists are invited to show projects for a period of one year, thereby entering into a dialogue with the architecture and with works from the permanent collection. The new installations, which will be on view throughout 2017, will emphasize quasi-theatrical staging and architectural extensions of the surrounding space.

The K21 Künstlerräume are sponsored by the Stiftung Kunst, Kultur und Soziales der Sparda-Bank West since 2016.
