Polke Salon

As a place of exchange, POLKE SALON is modelled on Sigmar Polke's work and thinking as an artist, on his curiosity to discover and bring things together and his use of free association in his work. Interesting participants will enter into a dialogue about and with Polke's work: scholars, gallery owners, and contemporary witnesses. Look forward to special encounters and new insights into life and work of Sigmar Polke.

We would have liked to invite you to joint discussions at the Anna Polke Foundation. However, due to the Corona pandemic, all SALON talks have taken place and will continue to take place without an audience until further notice. They will be recorded and can be accessed here afterwards.
