The work of Michail Pirgelis (*1976) updates the traditions of post-minimalism, the readymade and conceptual art while simultaneously resisting them. His process usually begins with found materials from aircraft cemeteries in California and Arizona, where disused passenger planes wait to be dismantled and recycled. The Cologne-based artist explores the limits of our understanding of objects, while radically expanding our experience of the sculptural.

In light of recent developments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), exhibitions, events and talks are subject to change.
The exhibition invites visitors to travel off the beaten tourist track. Included in the luggage are personal challenges, political and climatic borderline experiences, fictitious and virtual journeys in the mind and the last journey to the afterlife, which does not require a suitcase.
