Die Kunstakademie Düsseldorf 1773–2023 | Book presentation

Founded in 1773, Düsseldorf Art Academy is one of the most important institutions of its kind in the world. During its 250-year history, many internationally significant artists have trained here, and some have returned to the institution as professors during their careers.

This volume, published for the anniversary, offers a first overview of the various art movements that originated here or were closely linked to the institute, and introduces the artists who shaped it. The contributions, based on the latest research, focus e.g., on the 19th-century Düsseldorf School of Painting, while others deal with Joseph Beuys and his work at the Academy or take a look at the Becher School and the tradition of photography at the Academy.

The Gesellschaft von Freunden und Förderern der Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and the Kunstakademie now invite you to the presentation of the publication in the auditorium. This will be followed by a discussion.

Registration at info@foerderverein-kunstakademie.de by 11/21/2023.
