M Leuven presents a major retrospective of the work of the artist Thomas Demand, featuring two works made by the artist in collaboration with Caruso St John: The unrealised Nagelhaus and the soon to be built pavilion at the headquarters of fabric manufacturers Kvadrat in Ebeltoft, Denmark.

A new monograph is published alongside the exhibition, featuring an essay by Adam Caruso recounting the practice's numerous collaborations with the artist.

Due to Covid-19 there was no physical opening event. Instead, M opened the exhibition with a livestream on Facebook.
