Art, the Rhine and Beuys 

Going against the flow: Since the end of the 18th century, artists in Düsseldorf have been sparring with one another, riffing off existing ideas, questioning the concept of art itself and not infrequently causing a stir. And the Academy of Arts has been a driving force throughout the last 250 years. From Fluxus to ZERO, Lüpertz to Beuys, the Düsseldorf School of Photography to the Düsseldorf School of Painting – in retrospect they have all left their mark on todays vibrant art scene and the urban landscape.
