The MMK team mourns the passing of Ulrike Crespo (1950­–2019), a friend and patron of the museum for many years.

At the side of Jean-Christophe Ammann, she was the “woman of the first hour” in the founding of the MMK and the museum’s circle of friends and as a member of the board of trustees of the Karl Ströher Foundation. Our ties to Ulrike Crespo far exceed her grandfather Karl Ströher’s collection, which forms the core of the MMK holdings. For her ongoing generous support of our exhibition and collection activities, we shall hold her in our memory with deep gratitude.

Our thoughts are with her family.
