This is your chance to become part of an art project of the Ruhrtriennale with friends!

The artist Mats Staub shows his exhibition 21 – Erinnerungen ans Erwachsenwerden (Complete Edition) at the Ruhrtriennale 2021 in the Turbinenhalle. At the same time, his new project ›Jetzt & Jetzt‹ will start there. If you would like to participate, the first thing you have to do is contact us with your clique (two to four people) via

We will then arrange a date for you to come to the Turbinenhalle. There you will meet Mats. He will tell you about his project and make a film recording with each of you individually. You don't need any experience, just the desire to participate. Afterwards you will write a letter to yourself, which Mats will keep for you. You can also take a look at his exhibition 21 – Erinnerungen ans Erwachsenwerden. In the videos in the exhibition, people talk about what it was like when they were 21.

In 2023 there will be a reunion - we will make an appointment and in spring 2023 you will see Mats and the recording he made of you. Again you make a video. From the videos and letters a new exhibition of Mats Staub will be created at the Ruhrtriennale 2023 and you will be a part of it.

Adults who would like to participate in the project can find more information here.
