The Third Room is the title of an exhibition on show concurrently in two cities 1,000 km apart from each other: Warsaw and the German city of Düsseldorf. The project is being handled by two institutions, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf and the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, as part of efforts in Poland to promote the culture of Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia region—of which Düsseldorf is a key city. The exhibition spans the 1961-2011 period and features trends in art that have originated at Düsseldorf’s Kunstakademie and the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts (ASP).

The project focuses on the artistic and educational legacy of the Kunstakademie and the ASP, with a particular emphasis on the work of two German professors, Joseph Beuys (and his theory and practice of “social sculpture”) and Oskar Hansen (originator of “open form” theory). In Düsseldorf, works by Polish artists classified as part of the so-called Hansen tradition are on display (Zofia Kulik, Grzegorz Kowalski, Pawe³ Althamer, Grupa Nowolipie, Artur ¯mijewski, and Anna Niesterowicz), while in Warsaw viewers can see work by artists linked to Düsseldorf’s Kunstakademie, including students of Beuys (such as Blinky Palermo, Imi Knoebel, Gerhard Richter, Katharina Sieverding, Franz Erhard Walther, Klaus Rinke, Ulrike Rosenbach, and Reiner Ruthenbeck).
