MUSEUM EXPRESS (2021)
Mini exhibitions delivered to your doorstep.
Since the corona pandemic 2020 many art galleries have had to close and most events have been cancelled. The cultural scene suffered. Now in autumn 2021 the crisis is still not over and the fourth wave of the pandemic is just around the corner. I thought about how far I can help to improve the situation and came up with the idea for the MUSEUM EXPRESS. I have developed a mini exhibition space in a transport backpack (with LED light system) where friends and colleagues can exhibit. A single canvas, a print or a sculpture can be shown there on an area of 36 cm x 37 cm x 42 cm. Now the exhibition can be delivered directly to your door. Also there will be small exhibitions with the MUSEUM EXPRESS in different locations around my hometown Duesseldorf.
