anything goes. nothing has to.

freiraum offers you plenty of space for your artistic work in a beautiful 150 square metre studio vault in the city centre. Here you can do (almost) anything: Painting (watercolour, acrylic), drawing, collage, printmaking, relief and intaglio printing, drypoint etching, linocut, flat printing, plaster and clay, ceramics, photography and video, performance, woodwork, objects/sculptures (wood, mixed media, ytong, soapstone), textile design and more.


freiraum offers you space, inspiration and teaching – professionally, artistically and with respect for your individual path.
