The Ruhrtriennale 2020 cannot take place due to the Coronavirus pandemic

Dear audience,

The Board of Directors of the Kultur Ruhr has decided unanimously to cancel this year’s festival – the health of our public, artists and staff has absolute priority.

You can find the press release about the cancellation here.

The personal statement of Artistic Director Stefanie Carp can be found here.

Tickets that have already been bought will be refunded. To do this, tickets can be returned to the advanced sales outlets where they were purchased. Online customers will be contacted directly by Kultur Ruhr GmbH in the coming weeks in order to process their refunds. Any other questions can be directed to our ticket hotline: 0(049)221 280210. Please understand that due to the large amount of work, the processing may take several weeks.

Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy!

Your team of the Ruhrtriennale
