art KARLSRUHE returns to its original date in February

Application deadline for galleries is September 2023

After the May edition of art KARLSRUHE - Classical Modern and Contemporary Art this year, the fair will return to its traditional date. From 22 to 25 February 2024, it will once again open the art fair year. In one of the most beautiful exhibition centres in Europe, bright as daylight and free of pillars, art KARLSRUHE provides an overview of 120 years of artistic creation. It is anchored in one of Germany's regions with the highest purchasing power, the collector's state of Baden-Württemberg, in the immediate vicinity of France, Switzerland and Austria. The spacious fair with its focus on classical modern art, art after 1945, contemporary art and sculpture, sees itself as a mirror of the art market in all its diversity.

With a new structure of the halls to help visitors find their way around quickly and, for example, an extended range of works on paper, art KARLSRUHE is deliberately aimed at both established collectors and newcomers to the art market.

New management of art KARLSRUHE

The dual leadership of art historian Olga Blaß and gallery owner and board member of the Federal Association of German Galleries and Art Dealers, Kristian Jarmuschek, will jointly manage the fair from May 2023. Next year's edition will thus be a premiere for the dual leadership.

Blaß and Jarmuschek agree to further develop art KARLSRUHE in terms of its quality and structure, based on its strengths. This also includes rethinking established formats, such as the special show by a private collector, and giving space to other, forward-looking formats.

Application deadline for galleries

Only a few days remain for interested galleries to apply for the fair. The deadline for applications is 25 September 2023. The application forms are available on the fair's homepage.

Galleries that have already participated will find that the possibilities for presentation have been expanded to include exciting themes such as the Re:discover and Friends segments and that a restructuring of the halls is planned.
