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 are temporarily closed. 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!

The exhibition Willkommen im Paradies (Welcome to Paradise) is an immersive, interactive project that transports visitors into fictional worlds between utopia and dystopia.
