Kunstpunkte - Open Studios 2013

On the first two weekends in September the city invites you to take a look around some 500+ artists' studios which are opened to the public.

You can pick up a flyer, which lists the studios and gives you a free map (look under 'Karte') in numerous cafés, museums and book stores around town and you can go and explore independently or, you can take a tour where you will be driven to 5 or 6 different studios in a funky vintage bus. Each tour is accompanied by two artists who introduction you to the studios you are about to visit and encourage an exchange with the the artists you visit.

RhineBuzz will be giving two tours in English, on the Sundays, Sept 8 and 15, at 3pm. On one I will be accompanied by Gesine Kikol, who studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and on the second writer and poet Frank Schablewski will join me.

Not only do you get to see some fascinating art over the weeekend but you also have the chance to discover many hidden spots in the city. Many said this was the best RhineBuzz event of 2012, as you venture into parts of the city, you simply had no idea that existed. We visit former bunkers, an artists' colony built by Hitler, studios in disused factories by the Rhine and beautiful, balmy courtyards.

Open Studios is not just about visual arts - on Saturday September 14 at 5pm and Sunday 15 at 4pm, there will be two premiere performances of electronic music by Damian T. Dziwis and Maximillian Yip at Kunstpunkt Studio 209 - Sound @ART at the old artists' house in the city in the foyer of Atelierhaus Sittarder Strasse 5.

On the Fridays before Kunstpunkte, many extra spaces are opened where you can not only see art and meet the artists but there are also special performances, workshops and talks. See Off-Raüme for details.
