The Shop: Books, Art and Pretty Things

The artworks, the atmosphere, the joy, the interesting and the special can also be taken home – on paper. In close cooperation with the respective artist, we produce elaborate catalogs and artist books, which are as individual in form and content as the corresponding artworks themselves. You can find more details about the layout, authors and texts below under the individual title.
In keeping with the Municipal Art Collection, which specializes in multiplied art, some artists also produce graphics or multiples so that we can offer them to visitors to Kunstpalais. So far, one of a kind 3D-printed sculptures by Florian Meisenberg, a cap with LED lights by Alona Rodeh, and prints by Grace Weaver and Vivian Greven are available here.
People who like art also like to surround themselves with beautiful things, as we know from our own experience. That’s exactly the reason why Kunstpalais has a curator-curated museum store with jazzy, eye-catching, unconventional things that we’d like to own ourselves or would love to give as gifts: Jewelry made from laser-cut Plexiglas or crocheted yarn from Japan, England, and Australia, fine leather cooking aprons from the Netherlands, plant planets and gem galaxies from Denmark, special pieces of tableware and vases from ancient times – and whatever else we are able to find.
Our books, prints, and multiples can also be ordered online; everything else can be found exclusively on our store shelves in Kunstpalais until further notice. For urgent repeat orders or desires awakened via our Instagram account – we will gladly try to send you these things as well. 
Purchases with a value of up to 100 EUR will be sent to you on account within Germany. For purchase values over 100 EUR we send the good immediately after receipt of a proof of payment.
Andreas Schmitten. Nothing New

This catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Andreas Schmitten. Nothing New at Kunstpalais from March 16 until June 10, 2019.    

In the manner of colorful storyboards, drawn with calm strokes, stoic-looking people do outrageous things: A dentist smashes his entire surgery room into bits and then stretches out to sleep on the floor; a woman cuts off her clothes in front of the mirror and then burns the shreds in the sink.  

Whether in drawing, sculpture or murals—the works of Andreas Schmitten (1980 in Mönchengladbach) are as appealing as they are disturbing. He became famous for his peculiarly functional-looking sculptures and perfectly polished showcases. The artist’s book Nothing New now shows Schmitten’s latest drawings—in a lovingly designed and detailed volume with a colorful edge, which is reminiscent of the extraordinary framing of his drawings.
