Friends of the MMK can enjoy contemporary art-based trips and excursions both locally and further afield. Every second year we visit the Venice Biennial and the Berlin Biennial. The Documenta and the Sculpture Projects Münster are fixed points in our travel planning as well. Together with the curators of the MMK we select interesting places to go to always be on the cutting edge of contemporary art.




1st Trip: all-inclusive tour July 25 – 28, 2013
2nd Trip: Do it Yourself tour August 23 – 25, 2013

The Venice Biennale has for over a century been one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world. Ever since its foundation in 1895, it has been in the avant-garde, promoting new artistic trends and organising international events in contemporary arts. The art director of the 55th Biennale is Massimiliano Gioni, an Italian curator an art critic. The title of the main exhibition at the central pavillon and at the Arsenale is The Encyclopedic Palace. The German Pavillon will be curated by Dr. Susanne Gaensheimer again, who won the Golden Lion for her presentation of Christoph Schlingensief in 2011. For this year Gaensheimer invited Ai Weiwei, Romuald Karmakar, Santu Mofokeng and Dayanita Singh to work in Venice.
