Ruhrtriennale mourns the death of Jürgen Krings

The Ruhrtriennale's long-standing Managing Director Jürgen Krings died on Friday morning aged 57 following a prolonged and serious illness.

Willy Decker, Artistic Director of the Ruhrtriennale 2009-2011: "In him we have lost one of the leading figures of the Ruhrtriennale.  He was one of my closest colleagues and my most important advisor.  More than anyone else he embodied the soul and the continuity of this festival.  The whole team mourns a very dear collague and friend.  We will not stop missing him."
