What the German art magazine monopol writes about us ...
"Simply by looking at HMKV's website one understands how unique this art organisation at the Dortmunder U is: Numerous videoclips offer a comprehensive insight into the institution's program. Like no other place, HMKV addresses 'Sounds Like Silence', 'Strategies of Disappearance' or 'Ghosts and their Media' in great exhibitions." We are deeply moved. Check out the special Ruhr edition here.
