This important fixture on Düsseldorf's art scene is split into two parts, plus an installation space. Behind the sleek, polished black stone facade of K20 is a treasure trove of art (kunst, hence the K) of the 20th century, including works from masters like Picasso, Klee, and Richter. Within the more conservative 19th-century architecture of K21 is edgier fare—international art since about 1980, including the works of Thomas Ruff and Nam June Paik. Rounding
things off is the quirky, modern Schmela Haus (1967), a former commercial gallery, which the museum uses as a space for experimental art.
