International contemporary art
The MKM Museum Küppersmühle boasts several thousand square metres of exhibition space, a list of artists that includes Anselm Kiefer and Gerhard Richter, a varied programme of exhibitions and striking architecture that sits somewhere between industrial heritage and White Cube. The building, situated right by Duisburg’s vibrant Inner Harbour, is one of the leading art museums in the Ruhr Metropolis. The Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron have transformed the former warehouse building – used to store grain until the 1970s – into a spacious art museum. There are plans for an extension in 2019 with a viewing platform for visitors.
