The FREIRAUM, collaborative space for concept and work for the arts and science, has been perceived as an “artist run space” since 2020, as operated by the Ben J. Riepe team.

The FREIRAUM consists of two ATELIERs, which can be reserved by artists free of charge. The Co-Working-Space is open from mon to fri, 10 am to 6 pm and does not require any special registration.

Critical Distance

We are absolutely delighted to be presenting the next two editions of our Project “Critical Distance“ with two pivotal figures of the South-East Asian Art scene: Bharatanatyam dancer-choreographer, yoga practitioner, scholar, and social activist Navtej Johar and Mithu Sen, who performs conceptual and interactive multi-format byproducts which among others include drawing, performance, poetry, moving images, sculptures, installations, sound, to explore and subvert hierarchical codes and rules.
