Located along the Rhine in a beautiful 19th century railway station can the Arp Museum be found. Since 2007 in a truly sublime manner complemented by a new building designed by Richard Meier. Among others with a drilling technique that is also used in railway construction for the building of tunnels, has the upper part been established, where in addition to temporary exhibitions of contemporary art, the work of Hans Arp and his wife Sophie Taeuber-Arp takes center stage. Until 25 May can here the work of the Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto be seen for whom the physical is an important aspect in the perception of art. The senses of touch and smell are addressed by this installation artist who positions himself explicitly as a follower of Arp.
