RADAR is a new exhibition format of the LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur and Westfälischer Kunstverein. The name of the series alludes to keeping an eye on current artistic productions. Being displayed are works by younger, still largely lesser known artists who have been noticed and appear "on the radar". The exhibited creations provide insights into the artists’ current areas of work, with experimenting, failing and trying out serving as important aspects of the cooperative exhibition concept. With RADAR, the two institutions are – for the first time – entering into a spatial, conceptual and content-related cooperation.

Initiators: Kristina Scepanski and Dr Marianne Wagner
