NordArt 2016A Forum for the Art WorldHotspot for International Art

The NordArt, at home in the town of Büdelsdorf in the middle of Schleswig Holstein, is one of the largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe, presenting each summer works by around 250 selected artists from around the world. The 18th NordArt puts the focus on contemporary art from Israel and introduces for the first time a focus artist. The art show performs on the vast aisles of the historic iron foundry Carlshütte with 22,000 square metres (236,000 ft² ) floor space and a 80,000 square metres (860,000 ft² ) sculpture park. The NordArt is designed by chief curator Wolfgang Gramm as a complete artwork, in which the displayed works of art not only speak for themselves alone, but develop a distinct atmosphere interacting with the impressive scenery of the industrial architecture, taking the visitors on an unrivalled world trip through art.
