Founded in 2016, the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt exhibits in the central exhibition hall in the old main building of the Technische Universität Darmstadt as well as other locations in the city and on campus.

The artistic orientation of the exhibition house of the TU Darmstadt with its three focal points proves to be sustainable and fruitful:

Socially relevant thematic exhibitions, presentations of current artists and exhibitions related to the Technical University of Darmstadt as well as to the city offer a stimulating access to contemporary art.

Art education is also an indispensable part of art. In the past, numerous interdisciplinary and cross-generational events and guided tours for different target groups have been conceived and carried out.

New interfaces between art, culture and science have been created.

The Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt is always about a new, fresh look at current art and about surprising, interdisciplinary networking.

The Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt currently has its starting point in the exhibition hall in the Old Main from 1895 (Hochschulstraße 1). In addition, with extensive outdoor exhibitions, it also plays host to artistic activities in other locations in the city's outdoor space, such as Friedensplatz or Darmstadt Castle.

The Kunstforum offers a forum and is a forum. It sees itself as a place of encounter, of engagement with all facets of art from painting to installation, video, performance, music and dance.

The Technical University of Darmstadt is more than science, it sees itself as the center of the science city of Darmstadt and with its art forum also contributes to the aesthetic education of its students and employees as well as the urban society.

Athena is not only one of the most important goddesses of antiquity, her stylized head has been the official symbol of the TU Darmstadt since 1972. She is the patron goddess of the sciences – and of art!
