The ArtOthek in the southern wing of the Kleines Schloss allows users to borrow unique items (watercolours, gouaches, collages, drawings), prints (etchings, woodcuts), sculpture and objects for a small fee for their own living spaces or working environments.
In this way a familiarity with the work, the artist, the artistic direction or technique is enabled in familiar surroundings.
According to the motto 'lend pictures just like books!', the ArtOthek offers loans from the Ludwig Galerie Schloss Oberhausen, Kunstverein Oberhausen, the Arbeitskreis Oberhausener Künstler, annual gifts of the Kunstverein Oberhausen and works of the painting school as well as from its own stock.
Accordingly framed and packed, a maximum of three works can be borrowed for three or six months.
ArtOthek loans take place on each first Thursday of the month as well as on all family days and exhibition openings.
If the first Thursday is a bank holiday, the borrowing is postponed by one week.
The fee per work is 9 € for three months, 18 € for six months.
The ArtOthek card offers advantages for regular borrowers:
three works can be borrowed for up to one year for the price of 85 €. The loans can be exchanged once. Card owners gain free entry to exhibitions in the Ludwig Galerie upon displaying their customer cards. Special appointments can be arranged for the borrowing of several works of art for business spaces, doctors' practices, lawyers' chambers etc.
