Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art

Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art


The Edith-Russ-Haus For Media Art was made possible by an endowment by Edith Ruß (22.1.1919 – 18.7.1993). According to her will, the City of Oldenburg was able to build a house for the arts. She wanted to form a site to create 'art for the transition into the twentieth century.' This initiative was the genesis for the concept of a site for Media Art with both an exhibition space and guest apartments. The focus at the Edith-Russ-Haus for media art is on the content of the artwork and technology's influence on shaping and defining artistic ideas. The  Edith-Russ-Haus for media art stipend supports innovative projects within a broad spectrum of art dedicated to a content-driven analysis of media.


Beyond the program of discussions and presentations, they also hold exhibitions intended to address subjects which are socially relevant and future-oriented. The artists are be asked to take part in the site's activities during their six month stipend, but are not required to live in Oldenburg.

Studio Information
