COLLECTION SATELLITE #1
VOLKER DÖHNE

PUBLIC SPACE OF THE CITY KREFELD
JUNE 2018 – JANUARY 2019

The first collection satellite in 2018 will take place in Krefeld’s urban space, documenting the one-year renovation of Mies van der Rohe’s Haus Lange and Haus Esters. In the coming year, no exhibitions will be shown in either villa, as they will remain closed to visitors. In conjunction with the collection satellites, the photographer Volker Döhne will take an artistic look at each house and transport these private buildings into the public space. His photographs will be shown over the course of the year as posters on advertising columns and billboards throughout Krefeld.
The project, developed with the city marketing office, heralds the 2019 Bauhaus centenary.

COLLECTION SATELLITE SERIES
In 2018, the Kunstmuseen Krefeld are launching a new, interdisciplinary “project space” exhibition series aimed at inciting a new, dynamic dialogue between the artist and the museum. The collection in particular, with its great depth and diversity, will act as a catalyst for these experimental new projects by artists from different creative realms (art, design, graphic design, dance), and which are set in a variable time-space framework.

Curator of the series: Katia Baudin

The collection satellite series is supported by Stiftung Kunst, Kultur und Soziales der Sparda-Bank West
