Starting in March 2023, the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf will present the first retrospective of Düsseldorf-based artist Andreas Gefeller’s photographic work. The exhibition features 60 pieces from Gefeller’s overall oeuvre, sketching the artist’s development from his beginnings in analogue and digital photography to his most recent works, which recall 3D renderings. The presentation explores Gefeller’s questioning of photographic processes and experimental handling of the medium, which continually gives rise to new realities.


Gefeller challenges visual perception by reconfiguring such categories as large and small, light and dark, colorful and colorless. It is an approach that likewise carries over to viewers, who find themselves confronted with photographs that at first seem soothing but turn more disturbing upon closer inspection. His backdrop-like shots of resorts at night, constructed views of urban spaces or light-drenched cityscapes give visual form to modern social phenomena. Although long exposure times ensure that humans do not appear in Gefeller’s images, their presence is felt, nonetheless. Gefeller shows a technologized world, one in which nature is dominated by humankind.

Born in Düsseldorf, Andreas Gefeller studied communication design and photography at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. His work has been shown at exhibitions in Amsterdam, London, and New York, among other places. Gefeller lives and works in Düsseldorf.

Across nearly every medium Disney has touched, since the earliest days of animation, through innovations in live-action filmmaking, pioneering efforts in television, location-based entertainment and retail, and even gaming—one creative aspect of Disney has been seldom-recognized, but ever-present: that of costume design.

This exhibition explores nearly six decades of films produced by The Walt Disney Studios, Walt Disney Television, and Disney Theatrical Group, in an effort share with guests the level of craftsmanship and artistry required to produce every costume presented across stage and screen. Incorporating 79 costumes from 32 films, and representing 24 different designers worn by 71 different actors, Heroes & Villains: The Art of the Disney Costume exhibition will prove to be truly unique and magical experience for guests of all ages. 

Throughout the history of film, costume jewelry and accessories have been relied upon to help bring characters to life. Details such as these are often overlooked by an audience, but are, in fact, exactly what make Disney characters unique and timeless. In this exhibition we will take a look at the beautifully designed crowns, tiaras, watches, rings, bracelets, and more that have helped support some of our favorite moments in history of The Walt Disney Company. 

The photographer, filmmaker and artist, Agnès Varda, spent 70 years creating a personal work which was fundamentally rooted in its time. She was a trailblazer of the New Wave movement and one of the rare women of her generation to have had a successful career as a filmmaker. 


Her filmography boasts over forty short and feature-length films between fiction and documentary, including her greatest hits, Cléo from 5 to 7 (Cléo de 5 à 7) (1962), Le Bonheur (which won the Louis Delluc Prize in 1965), Vagabond (Sans toit ni loi) (which won a Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1985) and The Gleaners and I (Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse) (2000). 


Her early interest in painting and literature, along with her experience in theatre, strongly shaped her conception of the seventh art. A globetrotter and artist of conviction, Varda also paid close attention to the world and social upheavals. The themes of feminism, ecology and marginality transect her work, making it very relevant to the modern day. 

Aiming to reignite respect for our essential and complex biosphere, Our Time on Earth explores different ways of existing on Earth, particularly in the face of the climate crisis. Featuring 12 new collaborative commissions that include: A Biological Future for Fashion by BIOFABRICATE supported by Parley for the Oceans; The World Beneath Our Feet by Holition with George Monbiot; and the Sonic Waterfall by Silent Studios with Damon Albarn.


A journey through immersive, interactive installations and digital works, the exhibition is an exploration of radical ideas for the way we live. Where technology brings us closer to nature, and indigenous insight reconnects us to our roots. Enter the story of our future, with perspectives spanning art, science, activism and more.


This timely and unique exhibition encourages visitors to take an active role and leave feeling empowered to make positive change.
