Kunstwerk Carlshütte is a non-profit cultural initiative that has been organizing the annual NordArt exhibition featuring about 200 selected artists from all over the world since 1999. As an internationally established forum for cultural education and exchange, NordArt has dedicated itself to the task of enhancing mutual understanding through the language of art. Year after year, the exhibition designed by chief curator Wolfgang Gramm has redefined itself, always setting new priorities. NordArt ranks among the largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe. The vast halls of the historic iron foundry serve as its stage, with their 22,000 square meters of floor space and the adjacent 80,000 square meters large sculpture park. The art works, in interaction with the industrial architecture’s impressive scenery, develop their own unique atmosphere, taking visitors on an incomparable world trip through art. Each year NordArt focusses on a country with its own pavilion and cooperates with embassies, cultural institutions and curators from different countries. Specifically appointed artists and special projects have become another permanent fixture within NordArt.
