The White Box is an exhibition and project space for the arts at Zeppelin University. The space is both a site for display and an experimental laboratory, one in which new curatorial formats are tested. The events at the White Box aim to create a dialogue between the arts, the scientific community and society that is both surprising and stimulating. To do so, the program engages with the university's research and teaching, or discusses wider social issues that are relevant for the institution.


People in charge
Prof. Dr. Karen van den Berg, Academic Head of the artsprogram
Raehl Gloria Spöhrer, Curator of Visual Art & Coordinator of the artsprogram

The White Box exhibition space is sponsored by the Fränkel-Stiftung in the form of a Room Sponsorship and a regular support of the exhibition program.
