Kunstwerk Carlshütte is calling for applications for the NordArt 2018 International Exhibition of Visual Arts, inviting artists from all around the world to submit their entry.

As an internationally established forum for cultural education and exchange, the NordArt has dedicated itself to the task of enhancing mutual understanding through the language of art. It ranks among the largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe.


Artists from all around the world.


Each year one artist is awarded the NordArt-Prize — worth 10,000 Euro — with the aim to support the art and culture scene. A Public Choice Award is awarded as well, thanks to the votes the visitors of the NordArt cast to their favorite artist. The 2018 Exhibition is scheduled for 9 June – 7 October 2018.

Each year the exhibition is preceded by the international NordArt Symposium. Approximately 10 artists are invited to attend the symposium and create large works (sculpture, installation, painting) for the current NordArt.

The NordArt annual art exhibition is taking place since 1999, with about 200 selected artists from all over the world.

Last year, 3,682 artists from 99 countries applied for the exhibition.
