Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken facilitates new forms of collaboration and implements multidisciplinary projects. In the series STADTGALERIE DRAUßEN, the Stadtgalerie is active beyond the city centre with artistic projects in the urban space. We continue to support cultural professionals from the region: this year's selection was made by Justin Hayo.
The location for this project is meaningful: Located directly on the border to France, the DFG is a place of coming together and stands for the bond with our neighbor. In many of our projects we focus on the Franco-German friendship and the Saarland as a border region.
