Finale—the title says it all, something is coming to an end: From April 1, 1994 to March 31, 2022, it was and is my (the director's) task to steer the fortunes of the mpk within the framework of the Bezirksverband Pfalz.

Director's cut—one of the most beautiful and important tasks of a museum director is to develop and shape the museum's collections. Visiting numerous fairs and exhibitions, meeting and dealing with artists, these opportunities provide welcome occasions to acquire new works for the museum. The donations made to our museum by artists, collectors, and galleries are also extensive. A small selection of the works that have become very dear to me is presented in the exhibition, which is a grand finale to my official farewell.
