About
Launched in 2002 as the first cultural startup center in North Rhine-Westphalia, the Kunst- und Kulturzentrum (arts and cultural center) - short: KuK - in Monschau has become a forum for international photography. Every year, 35,000 people from far and wide visit the historical building in the old town of Monschau in order to see the temporary exhibitions of high-profile photographers and to enter the discourse with other visitors. As mentioned, the focus lies on the art genre photography, and the exhibitions of world-renowned and respected photographers are attractive across the region and beyond: a unique feature. Works by artists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Vivian Maier, Anton Corbijn and Berenice Abbott have already fascinated many tens of thousands of visitors. Furthermore, there are quite often exclusive exhibitions and German premieres. There are no permanent but four to five temporary exhibitions p.a.

The KuK is reknown for the quality of its exhibitions, that are changed every three months. Some giants of the medium have been exhibited here, as is Bruce Davidson, the current (April 2019) exhibition. The place itself is quite small and uncharming, but the pictures hanging on the walls are gems, anyone having the slightest interest in photography should pay a visit to every exhibition hosted there. As the entrance is free, there's no excuse not to do so.
