Opening twenty years after the death of Michel Majerus (1967-2002), the Germany-wide exhibition series Michel Majerus 2022 is dedicated to various phases and aspects of the artist’s extraordinary oeuvre, which has continued to influence generations of artists to follow.

In five solo exhibitions at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.), the Kunstverein in Hamburg, the Michel Majerus Estate, and at neugerriemschneider in Berlin, Michel Majerus’ oeuvre will be honored in all its complexity on an unprecedented scale. Loans from the artist’s estate, as well as from public and private collections, will offer new insights into Michel Majerus’ early work as well as the medial and topical questions posed throughout his body of work.

In parallel with these exhibitions in Berlin and Hamburg, thirteen museums throughout Germany will show works by Michel Majerus from their collections. Concurrent to the Germany-wide series, ICA Miami presents Michel Majerus: Progressive Aesthetics, the first US museum survey for the artist. On November 9, 2022, Mudam in Luxembourg hosts a symposium on Michel Majerus ahead of their exhibition of his work in 2023.

A comprehensive publication will accompany this unique series of exhibitions.
