July 7 – Oktober 29, 2017
The master of subversive irony and off-beat humour is now coming to the Ruhr region. In a joint exhibition, the MKM and the Lehmbruck Museum are showcasing works by the internationally acclaimed Austrian artist Erwin Wurm. The sculptures, photographs, murals, textile pieces and spatial installations combine to illustrate one thing: Wurm is celebrating chaos as a creative strategy. Transgressing boundaries with both humour and profundity, Wurm raises our expectations ad absurdum, and, in so doing, re-defines contemporary sculpture.
