Visit the EDITH-RUSS-HAUS for Media Art

The EDITH-RUSS-HAUS for Media Art was first made possible by an endowment by Edith Ruß (22.1.1919-18.7.1993). According to her will, the City of Oldenburg built a house “for the arts”. She wanted to form a site to create “art for the transition into the twentieth century.” This initiative was the genesis for the concept of a site for Media Art with both exhibition space and guest apartments.

With its focus on Media Art the Edith Ruß Site is an exception in Northern Germany. It is understood as a place for the presentation and communication in which the progressing digitalisation is as well discussed as the virtualisation of the world which New Media encourage. In a changing exhibition programme the Edith Ruß Site shows innovative and experimental tendencies of contemporary art.



The 9th EDEN Research Workshop is the initiative of EDEN supported by the ERASMUS+ Programme of the European Union
