Tino Sehgal: Open Call
Currently, a total of six inclusive mediation stations for hearing, touching and seeing are developed at the MdbK, offering new access to works in the collection. You can find more information about the project here.
The MdbK [next;raum] on the 2nd floor is a place for dialogue, which has so far remained underrepresented in the museum's collections. In exchange with interested parties from Leipzig, focal points have been set in recent months. The theme and the exhibition design changes every six months. The first [next;raum] deals with the visibility of women* and gender.
Would you like to enjoy a piece of cake, a good coffee or something savoury? Then the CAFÉ TREFF is exactly the right spot for you. The café at the MdbK is open for your visit. Opening hours: Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday: 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Wednesday 12 p.m.-8 p.m., Monday closed.
MdbK [in transit]
Since September 2019, the MdbK has been part of the country-wide funding programme 360° – Fund for New City Cultures. MdbK [in transit] is an ongoing process of discussion and learning.
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.
