SCHUNCK returns to its origins this fall. With four different projects that are based on the history of the building and on the result of 75 years of visual art exhibitions in Heerlen.

  • depARTment STORE – 75 years of visual arts in Heerlen
    During the depARTment STORE exhibition, the old function of SCHUNCK as a department store is combined with the special collection. This presentation takes place in a store concept in which the visitor can not only look but can also buy specially made multiples (works of art in limited edition) for this occasion. SCHUNCK works with an interior designer for exhibition design Maurice Mentjens. The DepARTment STORE includes Christie van der Haak – Knisper Knasper Knoesper
  • You are here – history of the Glass palace
    You are here is a semi-permanent presentation about the history of the Glass palace. The presentation tells the story about the Glass Palace, about the architecture and about the various interpretations and purposes over the years. On the basis of original photos, texts and collection pieces, the visitor gains insight into the history of the iconic building
