Cultural Transfer and Co-creation

In 1971 the ifa Gallery Stuttgart presented its first exhibition at Charlottenplatz. Since then we have been again and again astonished by the new perspectives that contemporary art offers. We thank all the artists for 50 years of critical discourse based on artistic approaches in a global context.

50 Years of ifa Gallery Stuttgart – a reason to celebrate!
