Dear friends of the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklingen Ironworks,

Since the 6th May  our new exhibition, “Inca – Gold. Power. God.” is open. Its focus: one of our culture’s greatest sources of fascination. Driven by the materialistic pursuit of gold, the Conquistadors conquered the most powerful realm in the Americas: the Incan Empire, with its highly advanced, 3,000-year-old culture. The 220 pieces in the exhibition testify to the conflict triggered by this meeting of civilizations and their very different attitudes toward gold.

The UrbanArt Biennale at the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site is the largest urban art project in the world, with 100 artists from 17 countries across four continents exhibiting their works on a parcours of 100,000 square meters. The 150 pieces on show offer insights not only into today’s global urban art scene, but also into the urban art scene in Latin America and the interventional nature of urban art 2.0. Pay us a visit for the 4th UrbanArt Biennale® 2017 and experience an exhibition atmosphere like no other. Visitors to it will experience the works of artists such as Banksy (GB), Okuda (E), Jordan Seiler (USA) and Vermibus (E), whose interventional image strategies penetrate deep into the consciousness of beholders.

I cordially invite you, dear friends of the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site, to come and experience the wonderful Völklinger Hütte, its exhibitions and events, and to bring your friends and family with you.

Kind regards 

Prof. Dr. Meinrad Maria Grewenig
CEO | General Director
