The Städelschule reopens its doors to the public for Rundgang, featuring open-studios, lectures, performances, and screenings with free admission to all. The 2G+ rule applies.

Throughout the course of three days, visitors have access to the presentations of works by students from the classes of professors Monika Baer, Gerard Byrne, Judith Hopf, Hassan Khan, Tobias Rehberger, Willem de Rooij and Haegue Yang, and guest professors Hannah Black, Niklas Maak and Sung Tieu. Students exhibit recent works at both locations, Dürerstaße 10 and Daimlerstaße 32, with scheduled screenings at the DFF—Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum. Additionally, students from Curatorial Studies–Theory–History–Criticism, a collaborative study program with Goethe University, host the Water Cooler Talks with guest curators and critics, and a video screening. Recent Städelschule and Portikus publications and editions are available for purchase in the library. Public tours of Lydia Ourahmane’s exhibition Survival in the afterlife are held at Portikus.

Prof. Yasmil Raymond, Rector of Städelschule and Director of Portikus, says, “Rundgang kicks off a year-long of exciting student-led initiatives of the public lectures, the graduate show, Gasthof and The Frankfurt Prototype, which alongside a special line-up of exhibitions at Portikus, will give the public access to inspiring works of art and revamp our exchange with the wider community. We are eager to give back the spotlight to art and to the artists who help us think what art is, how it is made and why.”
