Malwerk Oberhausen, Oberhausen

Artistic studio and producer gallery

A vivid place for connection of artists

As an artistic studio and producer gallery, Malwerk offers a wide range of services and products. The focus is on workshops, courses and artistic commissions as well as in-house productions in the fields of visual arts, literature and clowning. Self-produced works of art are offered for sale and for rent (“Artothek”); the studio rooms can be rented. In addition to the commercial artistic activity, we are active in the non-profit sector.
Our activities follow the maxims of general equal treatment, i.e. we are open to all people, regardless of “race”, ethnic origin, gender, religion or ideology, disability, age or sexual identity. At the same time, we want to bring the European idea to life.
