For a period of 4 weeks (14 August to 10 September 2015), 701 e.V. was given the opportunity to show 15 contemporary Düsseldorf artists on an exhibition space of approx. 2,500 sqm in the Franciscan monastery with its cloister, refectory and nave. The monastery on Immermannstraße/Oststraße, in the city centre of Düsseldorf, is expected to be demolished at the end of 2015 to make way for offices and flats. The last public tour of the monastery will now be flanked by an exhibition that comments on the site and visualises its special character in the context of the city centre.
