Sponsors help disabled people and with this also the studio house in Baerl

Finally the studio house opens up for all citizens, with or without disabilities. For the first time in the history of the house there is barrier-free access to the many courses, activities and meetings of citizens! “Mobile Facility Manager” Abdellah El Youssfi sponsored a stainless steel handrail for the mobility disabled and the German State and Federal Representatives of the SPD contributed a movable ramp for wheelchair dependent people.

The presentation was conducted by Duisburg SPD candidate for the German Bundestag, Bärbel Bas and by the candidate for senior mayor, Jürgen C. Brandt on Saturday, the 4th of July 2009.

We are very pleased and gratefully extend our appreciation on behalf of all participants and visitors!

25 years Studiohouse Atelierhaus Baerl - For preservation

More than 200 art and culture interested visitors celebrated the first 25 ys of "Art History" together with the 6 artists of the studiohouse at the Schulstrasse in Duisburg-Baerl. On this occasion the City of Duisburg, the Lord Mayor and the Cultural Office released the catalogue "Atelierhaus Baerl" on the history of the studiohouse that you can order via ISBN 3-89279-624-6. Following a few impressions of the party at 27.Oct.2006.

Because of rumours about a demolition of the "birthday girl" an initiative was founded in order to preserve the Studiohouse. The preface of the brand new catalogue written by Lord Mayor Adolf Sauerland and the Minister of Family, Education and Culture, Karl Janssen says:

"Since then this house became the centre of the quater... It does not only provide the artists with space for working and living , it also serves as a place of education and meeting for the citizens of Duisburg-Baerl, a House of Art and of citizen´s life ... We congratulate warmly to the first quater of a century "Art History" at the Schulstrasse and wish the cultural life in the beautiful [!] old building to continue flourishing , broad recognition and great success!"  (Original text see on the German site)
