The Küppersmühle Museum presented around 60 photographs from four decades, starting with early works from the Ruhr region, which often served as a setting for Andreas Gursky during his studies at the Düsseldorf Academy with Bernd and Hilla Becher. The rest of the exhibition tour ranged from well-known iconographic works to new works in large format and provides a comprehensive introduction to the visual cosmos of the photo artist.
A look at the Ströher Collection and the recently completed extension of the museum was worthwhile.
The Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron have transformed the former warehouse building with its listed brick façade as well as the extension into an impressive cultural building.
Art historian Jörg Mascherrek guided the members of 701 through the entire building. Many thanks, it was an unforgettable visit.
