art KARLSRUHE benefits from its location in the state of Baden-Württemberg, which boasts a dense cultural landscape and is the home of a great many art collectors. Located near the point where the borders of Germany, Switzerland and France meet, the fair has established itself since 2004 as an essential event in the immediate vicinity of great collections such as Grässlin (St. Georgen), Schaufler (Sindelfingen) and Hoppe-Ritter (Waldenbuch), Museum Würth (u.a. Schwäbisch Hall) and the Frieder Burda Foundation (Baden-Baden).
Moreover, art KARLSRUHE is convincing thanks to its curatorial concept, which assigns clearly defined focal points to each of the halls.
Hall 1: Graphic Prints + Original Editions
Hall 2: Art after 1945 + Contemporary Art
Hall 3: Classic Modern + Contemporary Art
Hall 4/dm-arena: ContemporaryArt 21
The adjudicating seven-person Advisory Board of art KARLSRUHE is composed of experts in the fair’s individual focal points.
The outstanding quality of the comprehensive auxiliary programme sparks equally strong enthusiasm among visitors and gallery owners.
