Exhibition opening Senga Nengudi

The exhibition Senga Nengudi at the Von der Heydt-Museum in collaboration with the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch opens on August 21. The American artist Senga Nengudi (born in Chicago in 1943) studied both dance and sculpture in Los Angeles in the early 1960s and continues to combine movement and sculpture in her works today, often in surprising ways.

On 21.8., 25.9., 23.10., 27.11., 18.12. and 15.01. at 3pm, Senga Nengudi invites dancers from the ensemble and the musician Justyna Niżnik to engage in an intensive, free-flowing improvisatory process to explore the strange and unusual materials she uses for her sculptures.

Remote Wuppertal

The internationally renowned and multi-award-winning artist collective Rimini Protokoll will be in Wuppertal in September and October with its urban performance walk Remote X as part of the preparatory phase of the future Pina Bausch Centre under the direction of Bettina Milz. The collective invites citizens on a group audio tour developed by Stefan Kaegi and directed by Jörg Karrenbauer.

A group of 50 headphone-wearing people sets off into the city – guided by a synthetic voice like the ones in our satnavs. Along the way, binaural recordings and film scores provide a soundtrack for the urban landscape. From the outside, the group’s progress through the city looks like a precisely timed choreography. From the inside, it feels more and more like a collective film. With every step, the computerised voice sounds more familiar. But who is speaking? Who are we following?


Tickets are now available.
