Follow our first Instagram Live Talk with the artist Barbara Kasten

Since the museum is still closed, we would like to start something very special for Volkswagen Art4All on this date: We’re going live! Next Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 6:00 pm, there will be a discussion between Andreas Beitin and Barbara Kasten on the Instagram channels of the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg (@kunstmuseumwolfsburg) and Volkswagen Culture (@volkswagengroup_culture). The artist will be joining us from Chicago, while our director will be at the Kunstmuseum to provide insights into the exhibition.
Although works by Barbara Kasten (b. 1936) are already included in important public collections such as the MoMa in New York and the Tate Modern in London, this is her first museum solo show in Europe. It was originally scheduled to open in March; unfortunately, however, we had to close the museum for the time being due to the corona pandemic. Here, we are showing works from five decades, focusing primarily on the artist’s intense color photographs.
Since the beginning of this year, we offer free admission and extended opening hours on the last Wednesday of the month from 4:00 to 9:00 pm. We also want to appeal to a wide variety of art lovers with a varied program. So now we’re going digital. Not following us yet on Instagram? Then it’s about time!
