In her work, Pamela Rosenkranz (born in 1979 in Altdorf, Switzerland) grapples with a multiplicity of materials that are as a rule encountered in the high-tech and pharmaceutical industries.
With her stage-style installations and idiosyncratic object language, Alexandra Bircken (*1967) has achieved international recognition in recent years. The Cologne- and London-based artist works with coarse materials such as metal, rubber tubing and wood, but also wool, leather, and transparent substances. For her arrangements, she slices apart motorcycles and devises coverings for fashion mannequins.

One has belonged to the Kunstsammlung since 2004, namely Two Families (2004). They form the point of departure for Hirschhorn’s expanding installation, which he arranged especially for the K21.
With his newly designed artist’s room, Hans-Peter Feldmann brings back to life images that have been stored in our visual memory. The artist has been recently working with old paintings, and here landscapes acquired at art auctions in the style of our grandparents’ living room are aligned according to their horizon lines to form a frieze.
