The MKM – Centre for Modern and Contemporary Art

Experiencing art and art spaces, taking a break from everyday concerns to enjoy a striking architectural setting – the MKM is a forum for modern and contemporary art in all its diversity, located in a vital cultural context. Thanks to the Ströher Collection, an international exhibition schedule, and its compelling architecture, the MKM has been a centre of attraction on Duisburg’s Inner Harbour since its opening in April 1999.
Sited at the hub of the pulsating megacity of the Ruhr Basin, the MKM enjoys fine transit connections with a dense rail and autobahn network, and with the Cologne/Bonn and Düsseldorf airports.


The Ströher Collection

The MKM harbours and presents key works of the Ströher Collection. Awaiting the viewer on two floors is a tour through several decades of outstanding achievements on the part of German artists of international renown, with an emphasis on painting.


International Exhibition Schedule

Each year the MKM mounts three to four changing exhibitions of international art, in a schedule that reflects recent and current developments. In addition, international cooperation with other art institutions enables the presentation of topical group exhibitions and retrospectives of the work of established artists. A further exhibition series, "Akademos", is devoted to art produced by professors at the renowned Düsseldorf Art Academy.
