A huge underpass-complex at the bench of the Rhine containing meanhwile more than 3000qm space on several walls, well reachable by train, car and bus….
The first events already happened late 90ies. Since then the underpass has completely changed from ghetto to an art-gallery.
The main walls in the underpass have space for about 80-100 artists and are created in huge concepts. In the past years the gallery has grown by private walls around. Various smaller walls at entrance and exit below the train-tracks enlarge the gallery and are available to paint all year long. These walls give space for single pieces, but also crew-productions.
Check out the gallery!
