Kunsthalle Duesseldorf

The Kunsthalle, a concrete block built in 1967, is one of the most concise buildings in Düsseldorf, a now rare example of raw architecture.

After Düsseldorf, Eating the Universe will appear in the Galerie im Taxispalais in Innsbruck from April to June 2010, and in the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart from September 2010 to J... [ Read all ]
