Is every star an artist? More and more successful actors, musicians and celebrities are now also moving onto the art stage.

The exhibition presents works by international and national celebrities that offer a glimpse behind the façade of the public persona, beyond role and celebrity, and reflect on art as a process of self-discovery.

AR Biennale

Hybrid Nature


This second edition of the AR Biennale is focusing on the fusion of nature, people and technology - because that is precisely where the strength of augmented reality lies.

Like Alice in Wonderland, you can take a walk at the second AR Biennale through the park that is filled with incredible natural encounters, hybrid plant and animal forms. Under the theme Hybrid Nature, this year's AR Biennale presents ten international artists and collectives in Düsseldorf's Ehrenhof and Hofgarten.

The fifth edition, titled REFORMULIERUNG (Reformulation), presents works from the Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf’s collection as well as selected loans from Markus Karstieß, Donja Nasseri and Peter Piller that thematically, conceptually and materially engage with art forms from past cultures and transpose them onto contemporary issues.
