Circa 200 galleries are exhibiting at art KARLSRUHE in 2019. They focus on the most diverse positions and periods of artistic creativity. The exhibiting galleries are augmented by exhibitors from museums, associations, clubs, educational institutions and publishing houses. To facilitate your orientation, each of the four halls focuses on a specific thematic area.
Here you can find a brief explanation about each thematic area, as well as more detailed information about selected styles of art and some of the artists who exemplify them.
The term “Post-war”, which is presented in Hall 2 at art KARLSRUHE, embraces artistic positions that crystallized after the Second World War, along with established positions in Contemporary art.
A glance at the list of artists proves that art KARLSRUHE annually presents outstanding works of Classic Modern art. None of the big-name artists who inarguably wrote new chapters in art history during the previous century seem to be missing. Visitors looking for styles such as Expressionism, Cubism, Surrealism or Constructivism will find them in Hall 3 at the fair.
A lifetime of art collecting often begins with the purchase of a graphic print – because thanks to their “serial” character, such prints are often affordably priced and accordingly attractive for neophyte collectors. The medium of graphic prints has truly earned the attention that is lavished upon it in Hall 1. At one time or another, nearly every artist has experimented with aquatint, lithography, silkscreen printing or woodcut. These genres go exceptionally well with photo art, which is the second focal point in Hall 1.
Each year around 200 One-Artist-Shows are shown at art KARLSRUHE, spread over all four halls. They are part of the successful concept of art KARLSRUHE. On a surface of at least 25 square meters, a gallerist dedicates his program to a selected artist, thus providing in-depth insight into artistic creation.
art KARLSRUHE’s Museum Mile offers cultural institutions (such as museums, art associations and foundations, as well as culture tourism) a platform for sharing and utilizing the synergies of an international art fair.
