A pulsating market place with an international profile

Start the season with an event you can’t afford to miss/ art KARLSRUHE: where the art scene meets

"Where art meets art" is the motto of the twelfth art KARLRUHE, drawing attention to the art fair’s glowing reputation as both a successful sales forum and a meeting place for the industry. The International Fair for Classic Modern and Contemporary Art attracts around 50,000 visitors to the halls of Karlsruhe’s trade fair and exhibition centre every year.

Photography will be playing a leading role once again at art KARLSRUHE. The outstanding collection of photographs by Arthur de Ganay in 2009 was followed in 2011 by the exhibition entitled “Fashion – Nine decades of fashion photography” from the stock of Camera Work Berlin. The Marita Ruiter collection by Gisèle Freund was a real crowd-puller in 2013.
