Additional exhibition venues and Off-Spaces

Present in Düsseldorf alongside the established art market are a multiplicity of self-organized exhibition spaces which offer young artists in particular a platform. These off-spaces close a gap between the Academy, the galleries, and museum institutions. They thrive on experiment and on the generally noncommercial commitment of art lovers and art producers.

The independent spirit of the operators of the off-spaces not only provide the local art scene with vital impulses – they also promote the social and cultural development of the city as a whole. For this reason, the fortunes of the off scene cannot be overestimated.
