Contemporary Art Ruhr, the media art fair June 3 – 5, 2016.

The contemporary art ruhr (C.A.R.), media art fair takes place within the unique atmosphere of the SANAA-building, a futuristic cube designed by the Japanese Pritzker Prize winners Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishiziwa. For the forth time the SANAA building will come to life with video and media art, installations, multimedia projects and photography by exhibitors from all over the world– located at the World Heritage Site Zeche Zollverein, “the world’s most beautiful coal mine” and centre of the creative industry in the Ruhr area.
