The gallery for contemporary art is located on beautiful Wilhelminian style factory premises. Until the beginning of the 20th century it was the place of business of one of the most important export companies for steel products of all kind. It was followed by a label printing shop, then the Musikhochschule Köln and finally the gallery moved in the lovely old brick-lined building. The location surely is unrivaled. The gallery verges directly on the Wupper and provides an undisguised view on the river and the monorail. The historic center is on a five minute walking distance. The large and light exhibition rooms have an unique pre-industrial flair. From off-site meetings, to business events and concerts a variety of events are possible here.
