Campus: Percent for Art

The Ruhr-Universität might be a think factory in essence, yet, at the same time, it exhibits all the features of a cultural landscape. In addition to the art collection and the Musisches Zentrum, it is the percent-for-art objects that emphasise the RUB’s artistic involvement. Due to the campus’ monumental and expansive layout, it often takes the experienced eye to notice the reliefs and murals scattered across the campus – even though the works have been created by first-rate artists, such as Josef Albers, Günter Fruhtrunk, Friedrich Gräsel, Erich Reusch and Victor Vasarely.
