Dear Visitors,

we are rebuilding our exhibitions and are currently closed. On 22nd November we will be back at the usual times with the exhibitions gute aussichten 2019/2020, Bieke Depoorter 2015-2019 and Made in Düsseldorf #2: Natascha Schmitten/Wolfgang Tillmans.

Bieke Depoorter 2015–2019


How close can a photographer get to the people they portray? Bieke Depoorter’s artistic work is based on her relationships with people and her own position as a photographer. The most comprehensive solo exhibition to date in Germany of the Belgian Magnum photographer presents five series from 2015 to 2019.
