MKM / Museum Küppersmühle
Duisburg, Germany

Several thousand square meters of exhibition space, a glittering array of featured artists ranging from Anselm Kiefer to Gerhard Richter, a diverse program of exhibitions and a stunning architecture straddling the boundary between industrial culture and the white cube.

Located in the heart of Duisburg’s vibrant Inner Harbour district, and celebrated as one of Germany’s largest, privately run museums, the MKM has since its opening in 1999 become a cultural beacon across the Ruhr metropolis. The world renowned team of architects Herzog & de Meuron has transformed the former mill and grain storage silo into an art museum, providing currently some 3,600 square meters of exhibition space.

With the Ströher Collection, the MKM houses one of the most extensive collections of German post war art, showcasing primarily paintings by the most influential artists dating from the 1950s to the present day.
