For the first time at the red dot design museum: the innovative art fair C.A.R.

Since 2006, contemporary art ruhr (C.A.R.) presents itself with two events a year. This autumn, the art fair is guest at the red dot design museum and will decorate the “Schürerhalle”, which is the main hall of the former boiler house of Zeche Zollverein, with contemporary art.

C.A.R. is organised by the initiators of “galerie/agentur 162”, Sylvia Sonnenschmidt und Thomas Volkmann, who have set their sights on developing a distinctive art market for the Ruhr area. The steady advancement and reinvention of the concept conduces to the success of the show which was well received as an official part of the programme of the European Capital of Culture 2010: Every year, new participants and cooperation partners are added. The innovative art fair is also a meeting point for dedicated artists and doers, so that it increases the appeal and uniqueness of the new art location of the Ruhr region.

Over the last five years, more than 900 exhibitors already took part and gave new insights into the latest trends in contemporary art. Thus, in 2010 alone, C.A.R. attracted 8,000 visitors who discovered newcomers as well as avant-garde and established galleries. From 28 to 30 October 2011, interested parties may get informed about the latest trends and compositions which the metropolis Ruhr offers in contemporary art at the red dot design museum.
