At its two locations K20 and K21, the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen installations by Reinhard Mucha (b. Düsseldorf 1950) span over 40 years of the artist's career.
This selection of rarely exhibited works offers a vast panorama of Mucha's artistic vision. It is considered one of the most prominent in contemporary art for its redefinition of sculpture, photography, and installation.
In addition to the installation Das Deutschlandgerät (The Germany Device)  1990, originally made for the German Pavilion at the 1990 Biennale di Venezia, his early seminal work Wartesaal (Waiting Room) ,  1979 – 1982 – which has not been shown publicly since documenta X, 1997 – will be on view.
Das Figur-Grund Problem in der Architektur des Barock (für dich allein bleibt nur das Grab) (The Figure-Ground Problem in Baroque Architecture (for You Alone There Remains Only the Grave), is one of the few remaining larger installations of museum furniture and everyday objects. It will be realized anew for the first time since 1985 in K20's Grabbehalle.
