Fondazione Prada has reopened its doors in Milan on June 5 2020 and the exhibition spaces will become accessible to the public from Friday to Sunday, from 10 am to 7 pm. The audience will be able to visit the three temporary exhibitions “K”, “The Porcelain Room”, and “Storytelling”.

“K”, a project that explores the literary universe of Franz Kafka through the works of Martin Kippenberger, Orson Welles, and Tangerine Dream, will be extended until 25 October 2020.
