25 YEARS KUNSTMUSEUM WOLFSBURG
MORE LIGHT AND SPACE
RENOVATION AND REDESIGN OF THE FOYER
In 2019, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary. Reason enough to completely renovate the exhibition hall and redesign the building’s foyer. After many years of continuous exhibitions, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg is now entering a short renovation and modernization phase and will close in January and February 2019 in order to be able to shine in new splendor for the anniversary year beginning in March.
Look forward to a completely renovated exhibition hall, an enlarged, much more audience-friendly foyer, a new museum shop, a redesigned restaurant, and a ground-floor café with a terrace facing southwest!
THE ANNIVERSARY PROGRAM 2019
The period of restoration will be used intensively in the Kunstmuseum: The activities in preparation for 25 YEARS KUNSTMUSEUM WOLFSBURG will continue at full speed both upfront and behind the scenes. On March 24, 2019, for example, we will open the largest presentation of the permanent collection in the Kunstmuseum to date, accompanied by a comprehensive collection catalogue of all artworks: ONE HUNDRED WORLDS. Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg. The Collection brings together one hundred international authors who have provided texts on the artists in our collection, whose works will be shown throughout the entire Kunstmuseum for the first time in its history.
The programmatic question of the spring of 2019, “What has the museum achieved thus far?”, will be replaced in the autumn by the question “What can a museum achieve today?” On September 29, 2019, the exhibition OIL. Beauty and Horror in the Petrol Age will open, covering a broad spectrum from the ichthyosaurus to the plastic-infested oceans of today.
The celebration will take place on the actual anniversary weekend of May 25/26, 2019 with a large festival and open house days in and around the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg!
