The numerous one-artist shows 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. Each year around 200 one-artist shows are shown at art KARLSRUHE, spread over all four halls. Each one-artist show of the fair is automatically nominated for the art KARLSRUHE prize.
They promote the perception of the individual position throughout the exhibition.
