About the Kunstkommission Düsseldorf
Art in architecture resp. public art is formative, creates distinctive places, promotes identification in neighbourhoods and is an essential component of modern urban culture and urban development.

For this reason, the Kunstkommission Düsseldorf in Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany was founded 2018. Since then, a panel of experts consisting of artists, art scholars, architects, urban planners and politicians has been advising the local political bodies on possible projects, artistic formats, locations of building projects, the type of selection process, the artists to be invited and finally the artistic ideas to be realised. The aim is to enable a manifold of artistic expressions in public space, often in connection with new building projects. In addition, the Kunstkommission initiates its own projects and formats in order to sharpen the view of art in public space and to strengthen the city’s profile. The members of the Kunstkommission, which is supported in its work by an own agency, are elected every three years.
