Kunstwerk Carlshütte is a non-profit cultural initiative and organizes NordArt, which has been held annually since 1999. NordArt is one of the largest contemporary art exhibitions in Europe, which is redesigned annually and which presents more than 200 selected artists from all over the world – internationally renowned artists and as well as newcomers. 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.

The exhibition thrives on the varying perspectives of individual cultures, but also points out the fact that East and West, South and North share many common thoughts. To deepen its insights, NordArt devotes its own pavilion to a different country every year and cooperates with embassies, cultural institutions and curators of the respective countries. Specifically appointed artists and special projects have become another permanent fixture within NordArt.

The exhibition grounds include the historic aisles of the iron foundry Carlshütte with their 22,000 square meters of ground area, the charming ACO Wagenremise and an 80,000 square meters sculpture park. NordArt counts more than 100,000 visitors every summer. For an impression of the exhibition site visit the virtual tour.
