The Philara Collection is a privately owned institution housing multi-faceted contemporary artworks across various genres. Through the close connection to the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Philara supports especially young up-coming artists.
Two exhibitions will be on display. The exhibition “I’ve Only Got Eyes for You” presents the latest acquisitions of the collection. The artists work on the themes of identity, bodily experience, and representation in an increasingly complex world. “Breathing Water, Drinking Air” partly shows artworks that have never been exhibited before and addresses the fluid boundaries between humans and nature in the Anthropocene.
