Cabinet Exhibition

Michel Gockel – Ghosts

For the seventh time, doors and gates along the Frankfurter Strasse will open for the Gallery Festival, leading to unconventional exhibition spaces and to the already existing art and cultural venues, offering visitors* new, interesting, perhaps even controversial insights into and views of contemporary artistic positions. The opening took place on Friday, May 17, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. in the Museum for Sepulchral Culture with a welcoming address by Susanne Völker, Head of the Department of Culture, and Dr. Dirk Pörschmann, Director of the Museum of Sepulchral Culture.

On this occasion Michel Gockel showed a selection of his works in the Museum for Sepulchral Culture, which deal with death in various facets. Using humour as a tool, Michel Gockel tried to track down reality and counter it with a new, more fragile image.
