Description

SOMETHING IS MISSING in the Kaiserpark in Krefeld. But what? Only one thing is certain: There is definitely no lack of artistic excellence. As early as 2019, Thomas Schütte, who is known for his architectural models, had already built his Krefeld Pavilion there, designed for this location. The wooden building, with a diameter of fifteen meters and a curved copper roof, housed the exhibition of the Projekt MIK initiative, which marked the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus by exploring its close links to the silk industry. Now, Thomas Schütte himself has designed an exhibition for this space: a precisely chosen and staged cross-section of his work over the last five decades. The exhibition and its architectural space combine to form an impressive total work of art.
