The Museum Küppersmühle is being expanded: More space for modern art

The collection includes works from Anselm Kiefer to Gerhard Richter

Autor: Julia Bauer

The Museum Küppersmühle für Moderne Kunst (MKM), the museum of modern art in Duisburg, is being expanded: On 5 April 2017, Walter Smerling, director of the museum, Pierre de Meuron from the Herzog & de Meuron architects bureau and the mayor of Duisburg, Sören Link, will lay the foundation stone for a four-storey museum building. The extension is due to open in 2019.

The new building, which has been designed by Swiss architects Herzog & Meuron, creates 2,500 square meters of additional exhibition space for the Ströher collection, considered to be one of the most important collections of German post-war art. It comprises around 1,500 works, from the 1950s to the present day. Currently, only around 25 percent of the collection items can be shown in the MKM.

The design for the four-storey extension is based on the existing museum building and the architecture of the Duisburg inland port that has grown up around it, and blends in with the row of historic red brick buildings. The new building will be connected to the existing one via a silo wing. The silos, which will include a viewing platform, will then be accessible to visitors for the first time. The first conversion of the former mill and warehouse building, the “Küppersmühle” into one of the largest private museums in Germany, was already planned by Herzog & de Meuron at the end of the 1990s.
