Taking the title of the exhibition FALSE SPRING as a starting point, the artists from different backgrounds particularly posed questions about environmental, consumer-social issues on both a conceptual and material level. They refer to personal association with nature, longing or aversion in their processes of idea development.

The exhibition took place on more than 2,500 square meters in the foyer and 1st floor in Königsallee 106. The exhibited works were developed especially for this location.

The patronage was taken over by Dr. Stephan Keller, Lord Mayor of the City of Düsseldorf.

701 e.V.

The exhibition was generously supported by Catella Project Management, Kunst- und Kulturstiftung der Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf, Rheinischer Sparkassen- und Giroverband,WPV

The exhibition took place in the context of the photo+ Biennale for Visual and Sonic Media

Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM)
The Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM), opened in 1990, offers a challenging project study program under the title “Mediale Künste”, which allows each student to freely choose and individually combine artistic focuses. “Mediale Künste” can be studied at the KHM in 9 semesters (undergraduate / Diplom 1) or in 4 semesters (postgraduate, Diplom 2).
Between the media or even around the media, the KHM creates a special, experimental climate for independent artistic work. The focus of the diploma program is on the individual development of artistic projects, in which students are supervised and supported by professors, artistic-scientific and technical staff across all disciplines.


CATELLA / WPV – KöTower, Königsallee 106

About the building
Catella and WPV (Versorgungswerk der Wirtschaftsprüfer) as owners are completely redeveloping the high-rise building Königsallee 106 and its surroundings. The “Kö” gets a new face and expands the spectrum with components that were previously unknown at this location. Until now, the “Kö” has always been equated with luxury shopping and bankers in dark suits. With the new KöTower, new impulses are being added. As a distinct architecture and art campus, the new building will focus on creativity, openness and transparency. Instead of the usual forbidding habitus of classic office buildings, the interior and exterior, office and open space will be intertwined at this location. The new design will create a space and atmosphere for a quiet square at the interface between the southern Kö and the high-density Friedrichstadt.
