Guided Tours to Works of Art

Kunst in der Mensa am Adenauerring

The works of art of Campus South have been procured mainly under the program “Kunst am Bau” (Percentage for Arts) of the State of Baden-Württemberg. Since the mid-50s, artists have translated their ideas on arts and science into works of art that were built parallel to the construction of the campus buildings.
