Finally, the personal exchange is possible again. The return to a real encounter with art is welcomed by exhibitors, collectors, artists and audiences. With a view to the upcoming art KARLSRUHE – Classical Modernism and Contemporary Art (17th to 20th February 2022), the seven-member advisory board under the leadership of curator Ewald Karl Schrade and trade fair boss Britta Wirtz has now juried the participating galleries. A total of 213 nationally and internationally renowned galleries from twelve countries will present their program at the fair.
Nationally and internationally renowned galleries
This year’s exhibitor list once again unites galleries of all genres – from classical modernism to the latest contemporary art. Renowned galleries such as Baumgarte (Bielefeld), Ludorff (Düsseldorf), Friese (Berlin), Maulberger (Munich), Osper (Cologne), Rotermund (Hamburg), Schwarzer (Düsseldorf) and van der Koelen (Mainz) are among them. This year’s art KARLSRUHE is also well positioned internationally, for example with Cortina (Barcelona), Fontana (Amsterdam), Gilden’s Art (London), Gimpel & Müller (Paris), Anna Laudel (Istanbul), Morone (Milan), Prinz (Madrid) and Várfok (Budapest).
A large number of well-known artists will be represented at art KARLSRUHE through the various programs of the approved galleries: From Josef Albers and Salvador Dali to Otto Dix and Max Liebermann to Pablo Picasso and Kurt Schwitters. Georg Baselitz and Franz Gertsch, Heinz Mack and Neo Rauch, Gerhard Richter and Günther Uecker are represented in the segment of established contemporary art. Strikingly many artists present their works. Here the arch of Miriam Cahn and Katharina Grosse extends to Xenia Hausner and Candida Höfer to Karin Kneffel and Cornelia Schleime.
From Expressionism to Informel, ZERO and Pop to positions of recent, also politically engaged art, the entire stylistic spectrum from 120 years is offered.
New hall structure for type KARLSRUHE 2022
A unique selling point of the fair is the unique planning of galleries in interaction with spacious sculpture places. In 2022, a total of 24 sculpture places will be on display at the fair. New this year is a changed arrangement of the usual four exhibition halls. In addition to the focus halls Classical Modernism, Art after 1945, Printmaking and Contemporary, visitors will now find their own hall for the topics of special exhibitions, museum presentations and talks including a spacious restaurant area. Under the motto “Art and Communication”, the newly designed hall invites you to linger and offers plenty of space for new discoveries and new habits at art KARLSRUHE 2022.
Women: Klöcker Collection
The annually changing special show of art KARLSRUHE can also be located in Hall 3. At the upcoming fair, it will be entitled “Women: Klöcker Collection”. Maria Lucia and Ingo Klöcker, both a doctorate in law from Bad Homburg, began the acquisition of art at the end of the 1980s and from the beginning it was about women’s representations in post-war and contemporary art. The feminine in art runs like a common thread through the entire collection of the collector couple, whether painted or shaped by artists. A representative selection will be on display in the traditional special exhibition on around 300 square meters. After the special show was to be shown as early as 2021, the Klöcker Collection will finally receive its due appreciation at art KARLSRUHE in February 2022.
