The OSTRALE as the third-biggest annual exhibition of contemporary art in Germany presents all genres of the international contemporary fine arts.

Its eighth edition will take place from July 18, 2014 until September 28, 2014 – true to the motto “Around You”.

The OSTRALE focuses on artistic positions and perspectives which bring up questions – here and elsewhere – which affect the spectator, which puzzle, and connect. In recognising different identities and modes of expression, as well as recognising their equal participation in the discourse within contemporary commitment, we see an important potential for an open-minded Europe.


Arrival of the first artists in Artcamp! In line with the program “Artist in Residence”, for four weeks some of this year’s OSTRALE artists have the opportunity to stay on site, to chat and to create works of art. Today we welcome Şafak Çatalbaş (left, TR), who is making her contribution to the project “Private Nationalism”.

Save the Date: Opening of OSTRALE `014 on July 18, 2014.
