We warmly invite you to join us at Museum Abteiberg on the last day of the exhibitions featuring ANDREA BOWERS, HANS HAACKE, and EVELYN TAOCHENG WANG, from 11 am to 6 pm. Regrettably, due to the current circumstances, our invited guests from out of town will not be able to attend the closing event in person. As a result the event will be held at 12 pm, partly in person and partly online, with various multimedia contributions and a public discussion. Unfortunately, we have to limit the number of attendees to those who have already registered. A number of contributions will be available afterwards on the museum’s website.

Your well-being is our top priority. We kindly ask all visitors to wear a face mask throughout their entire visit to Museum Abteiberg. Please also maintain a safe distance and adhere to local guidelines related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The closing event with invited guests was organized in collaboration with the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung NRW as an exhibition discussion and the 12th Grüner Salon Mönchengladbach.

ANDREA BOWERS grief and hope was made possible through the generous support of Kunststiftung NRW, the Hans Fries Stiftung, and Museumsverein Abteiberg (Museum Abteiberg’s supporting association).

The Mönchengladbach exhibition was made possible with support from Museumsverein Abteiberg.

EVELYN TAOCHENG WANG Sour Gnossiennes serves as the concluding presentation of the International Studio Fellowship of the City of Mönchengladbach, which is funded by the Josef and Hilde Wilberz Foundation.
