15 years of 701 e.V. - a reason to promote Since 2005, the 701 association has been supporting and promoting Düsseldorf's art and cultural scene with a wide variety of measures. In doing so, it not only provides artists and curators with exciting and ever new exhibition venues in the city, but at the same time offers interesting insights into cultural-political topics that move Düsseldorf and the Rhineland with panel discussions, art talks and film evenings.   In 2020 - our actual anniversary year - it was unfortunately not possible to celebrate this properly due to the corona pandemic. Now, one year late, we are making up for it and, on the occasion of our anniversary, we would like to hold a charity auction to support all those artists who have worked with us over the years and who have suffered particularly from the pandemic.

Auction on the 15th floor in the Medienhafen/ myhive with 100 guests from the Düsseldorf art scene.

Arno Verkade, Managing Director of Christie’s Germany sells all the artworks in the charity auction for 51,180 euros plus wine for 730 euros (for a kindergarten in the Ahr Valley).

More than 50 artists were auctioned off, including Boris Becker, Leiko Ikemura, Claus Föttinger, Peter Piller, Thomas Ruff and Thomas Schütte.

On 24 September 2021, at 7.30 pm, our big charity auction in favour of the local art scene started at myhive Medienhafen Düsseldorf 15th floor. In addition to works by around 50 contemporary and international artists from the long exhibition history of the non-profit organisation, charity gifts by Boris Becker, Claus Föttinger, Leiko Ikemura, Peter Piller, Thomas Ruff and Thomas Schütte were auctioned off.

The proceeds from the sale will go without exception to the participating artists as well as to the association 701.e.V. for the promotion of further artist and exhibition projects. Each work bought at auction is thus a very personal contribution to maintaining the diversity and vitality of Düsseldorf’s art scene.

We would like to thank Christie’s Düsseldorf, in the person of Arno Verkade, for this great support, without which this auction would not be possible.

We would also like to thank myhive Medienhafen Düsseldorf for their generous support of this event and for providing us with these extraordinary premises on the 15th floor with a view over Düsseldorf.
