Opening Refik Anadol


Based on extensive image data sets from the four museums, the internationally renowned AI media artist developed a data sculpture that will illuminate the façade at the main entrance of the Pinakothek der Moderne for the anniversary.

Refik Anadol wants to put visitors in a state of "immersion", to transcend the traditional boundaries of observation and expand consciousness. The oppositions between surface and space, reality and fiction, physicality and virtuality dissolve.

Opening & Artist Talk with Refik Anadol | TUE, 13.09.2022, 7 pm | Admission free
Duration | 14.09. until 27.11.2022

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Pinakothek der Moderne, the Sammlung Moderne Kunst is being presented in a new way on 3,600 square metres of exhibition space with around 350 works by more than 150 artists. Under the programmatic exhibition title MIX & MATCH, painting, sculpture, graphic art, photography and video art meet for the first time in thematic rooms that span epochs and media. In unconventional juxtapositions, works of art from 120 years open up lively perspectives on central questions of our present.

Short sound collages, spontaneous poems, drawing experiments and performative interventions open up new approaches and perspectives.
