In just a few years - and despite the pandemic - the fair has established itself as one of the world's most important hotspots for art. Alongside Art Cologne, which has been held regularly since 1967, and the major art fairs in Basel and Miami, Art Düsseldorf is a meeting place for art collectors from all over the world. The special location on the large Böhler site in Düsseldorf and the digital presentation of the fair are the perfect combination to draw the attention of art lovers - wherever they come from - to Düsseldorf or to be there live on site. 

In this episode of Alle Rhein! in conversation with host Mike Litt, Art Düsseldorf director Walter Gehlen reveals how you can buy art at the fair even on a small budget. Even those who don't want to buy art will learn why a visit to Art Düsseldorf is definitely worthwhile and guaranteed affordable.
