During the refurbishment of the Kunstverein and the Kunsthalle, which is due to continue until May 2002, the Kunstverein will make use of the special situation brought about by the construction site with a series of art and music events. From September 2001 until February 2002, Eingang links offers artists, musicians and mediators a platform for collaborations on respective Saturday evenings. Significant interrelationships between art and music in contemporary life will be investigated in a series of performances, musical contributions, video presentations and talks.
The Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen was awarded the Jürgen Ponto Foundation Young Art in the Kunstvereinen prize in 2001. The prize money was directed towards the financing of the Eingang links series of events.
