Something is missing in the Kaiserpark in Krefeld. But what? Only one thing is certain: There is definitely no lack of artistic excellence. As early as 2019, Thomas Schütte, known for his architectural models, had already built his Krefeld Pavilion there, designed precisely for this location. The wooden building, with a diameter of fifteen meters and a curved copper roof, housed the exhibition of the Projekt MIK initiative, which marked the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus by exploring its close links to the silk industry. Now, Thomas Schütte himself has designed an exhibition for this space: a carefully chosen and staged cross-section of his work over the last five decades. The exhibition and its architectural space combine to form an impressive total work of art.

THOMAS SCHÜTTE (*1954, Oldenburg) studied with Fritz Schwegler and Gerhard Richter at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and is known for his special combination of architectural and sculptural elements. In 2005 he was awarded as best artist at the Biennale di Venezia.
