Dusseldorf's K20 Museum Shows Off New Look

It's been two years in the making, but The K20 Museum in Dusseldorf, Germany, has finally reopened its doors, revealing extensive renovations and expansion.

As of July 10, the museum housing 20th century art (Ernst, Picasso, Klee, Pollock, Richter, etc.) reopened showcasing a new structure, connecting to the old one, and two column-free exhibit halls of 21,500 square feet.

Four art projects were also highlighted with the reopening: A 90-foot flickering colorful structure called "Hornet," by Sarah Morris; Olafur Eliasson's "Flower Windows,"; Joep van Lieshout's "Lokal"; and Karin Sander's use of the brand new "art laboratory" as part of the museum's educational department.

K20 houses work from the early 20th century up to 1945. A second museum, K21, feature art from 1945 through the present. Both museums are offering free admission through July 24, as well as free shuttle service between them.

Stay tuned next week as Travel Agent will be on location reporting from Dusseldorf.
