In order of appearance.

Graduates of the Düsseldorf Academy of Arts 2019

Feb 8 — Mar 8, 2020

  • Marco Biermann and Tomas Kleiner, Medusa – Floating Body, 2019

For the second time, the Kunstsammlung at K21 is featuring current works by graduates of the Düsseldorf Art Academy. All 77 participating artists completed their studies in 2019 and now, roughly one year later, are presenting new works of art in a museum. The exhibition reveals the young artists’ preoccupation with the topics of our time and brings together works from the entire spectrum of artistic media: paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, prints, videos, and performances.

The exhibition’s title is borrowed from the world of cinema, i.e.  the convention in film credits of listing the participating actor in order of appearance. Accordingly, the exhibition is based on a non-hierarchical principle: all of the past year’s graduates have been invited to propose new pieces for the presentation. The resultant works – all selected by a curatorial team of the Kunstsammlung in close collaboration with the artists – will occupy the entire lower level of the K21.

With this, the cooperation between the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen and the Düsseldorf Art Academy enters its second round. With this annual exhibition series, the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen promotes young art and provides a platform for graduates of the academy. The exhibition provides insight into current artistic developments in
Düsseldorf.
