Dear vis­i­tors,

as a re­sult of the mea­sures adopt­ed by the gov­ern­ment of North Rhine-West­phalia to con­tain the spread of the coro­n­avirus, the NRW-Forum and the Kunstpalast will remain closed until 31 January 2021. No in-per­son events will take place during this time.

Our social media channels Facebook, Instagram and Twitter will of course remain active. There are also many digital offerings to discover on the Kunstpalast website and on our children's website Rhinopalast.

We hope to see you soon!
Stay healthy!

advertising, robotics, and art.
