I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming 40° Urban Art Festival 2017. The third round of this Festival for Urban Contemporary Art this year will happen in Düsseldorf Holthausen at „Kamper Acker“ from 12. – 25. August.
Initiator of this event in 2013 was, among others, FARBFIEBER and the driving force behind it KLAUS KLINGER, to give space and voice to artists and creative. In 2013 I just had missed this event, but visiting Düsseldorf, you stumble upon the remnants of this festival all the time. In 2015 the event concept was quite different. The central Gustaf-Gründgens-Place right in the heart of the city, and an abandoned office block, played the key role this time. More than 100 national and international artists were invited to use the grounds and play for 10 heavenly days.
Are you based in NRW? Don’t miss it! For pictures of 2015 -> visit
