The exhibition program of the KUNSTHAUS NRW KORNELIMÜNSTER offers an insight into North Rhine-Westphalia’s current and future art scene. Since 1948, North Rhine-Westphalia has been purchasing works by young artists to support them. Today, the collection numbers 4000 works, documenting the history of North Rhine-Westphalia’s art to the immediate present day. The collection is hosted in the baroque palace building of the old Abbey of Kornelimünster.

    büro komplex – the art of the artothek in the political sphere

    Since the 27th October 1948 the ministry of culture acquires artworks of young visual artists with relation to the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The current collection comprises around 4.000 artworks of which one third is generally lent to offices, conference halls and foyers of the federal ministries. Commemorating the 70th anniversary of the funding program and the collection with its Artothek, the Kunsthaus presents a detailed exhibition about this antagonistic duo – art and office. Based on works of the collection and interventions by contemporary artists, the office is shown as a place of art, revealing the relationship of art and politics. The exhibition combines questions about the changing position of the office as workplace, about administration bureaus as the place of political power, demonstrating history as well as art history in the Rhineland and Westphalia.
