The Neue Kunstraum Düsseldorf (NKR)

Nour Sokhon and Jilliene Sellner, members of Heya, are selected for a commission from NKR.


NKR Call # 2

The NKR published an open call in spring 2020. 146 videos with various concepts and exhibition ideas from international artists have been received. The NKR would like to thank all of the artists for participating in the NKR Call # 2.

The jury chose the “Expanded Turn” project by Nour Sokhon and Jilliene Sellner:

because we are showing a position that is still unknown in Düsseldorf and NRW and that is embedded in the discursive, global art context. The jury is looking forward to seeing how the project develops based on the submitted proposal. “

(Statement by the jury – Alisa Berger, Lena Ditte Nissen, Moritz Ellerich, Detlef Klepsch, Matthias Neuenhofer, Anne Schülke – July 18, 2020)

The “Expanded Turn” project will take place from September 9, 2021 to October 10, 2021 at the NKR. NKR Call # 3 is expected to be released in spring 2021. Interested parties can subscribe to the newsletter and will be informed of the publication.

The NKR Call project is funded by the Art and Culture Foundation of the Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf.

Idea and organization: Detlef Klepsch & Anne Schülke

Special opening times | August 4 – August 9, 2020
