The Collection KOLK 17
The collection KOLK 17 has not been on public display since 2018, as the exhibition rooms are being extensively renovated. The approx. 20,000 different theatrical artifacts from Europe, Asia and Africa have been stored in the depot for over three years.
Little or nothing is known about the figures of non-European provenance. From April 2021 on, KOLK 17 opened the depot for the first time with the project WHO’S TALKING? for international and diverse performing artistic approaches.
