This means that admission is only possible with a negative corona test or valid proof of vaccination or recovery. In addition, contact tracking is necessary for visitors to the MdbK. You can use the Corona warning app, the Luca app or a handwritten contact form for this purpose. We would also ask kindly to wear a medical mask (FFP2 or similar) and to keep a minimum distance of 1.5 metres from other persons. We look forward to your visit!

We'd like to introduce you to our latest resident at the MdbK: BTHVN by German artist Stefan Balkenhol. For the next few months, the Max Klinger room will be his new home.
From 23th of February to 15th of March, the city became an exhibition space. On more than 200 backlit billboards, the MdbK showed reproductions of five paintings from its collections instead of classical advertising during the lockdown. For each of the works, there is a short audio piece, analogous to an audio guide. An overview of the billboarded works can be found here....
After more than seven months of closure due to the pandemic, the café at the MdbK is open again from Wednesdays to Sundays. We are delighted and invite you to join us!
Currently, seven inclusive mediation stations are set up at the MdbK, which offer access points to listen, touch and see.
The art mediation offers material for schools to use in class. The content on our digital platform Padlet is aimed at all class levels and invites you to get to know artist, exhibition and much more. (Note: The servers of the "padlet" platform are located outside of the EU, a transfer of personal data and a combination with user profiles is possible)
The photographer Evelyn Richter is the first winner of the Bernd and Hiller Becher Award for Photography – this was announced by the city of Düsseldorf on 02/04/2020.

Since the end of the 1990s, so-called provenance research has been an important topic at the MdbK. From the end of 2015 until October 2020, the Magdeburg-based German Centre for the Loss of Cultural Property funded a provenance office at the MdbK with two successive funding projects, thus giving this field of activity new impetus.
