DAS ESSZIMMER (engl.: the dining room) was founded in 2011 as a non-profit, artist run art space. In favour of a broad array of artistic positions the gallery programme explicitely renounces a particular conceptual focus based on media, though there is a slight bias towards installations. DAS ESSZIMMER is dedicated to support innovative, emerging artists.
The art space is regularly involved in curatorial and collaborative projects, developing new formats. Exhibited artists are included in significant institutional collections.

Armin Rohr is a painter and draughtsman. For his work he uses different, traditional media such as paper or canvas. In cycles, he repeatedly changes his pictorial language by switching from abstraction to figurative or combining both forms. His best-known works are characterised above all by a combination of extensive wall installations consisting of murals, paintings and drawings, autonomous oil paintings and monotypes. In the PASSAGE art project in the Kaiserpassage in Bonn, we are showing three of his large abstract works on canvas that are similar to his murals. In the individual works, round, organic forms alternate with graphic structures. The interplay of amorphous, abstract bodies, surfaces, dots and lines creates the illusion of spatiality. They form their own effective space of figures and structures. In the mostly colour-intensive arrangements, Armin Rohr combines organically proliferating forms, remnants and ciphers of figurativeness and abstract colour surfaces in his abstract phase to create an associative but alien cosmos.
The art project PASSAGE uses the temporary vacancy in the Kaiserpassage, in the center of Bonn, and turns it into a place for art that creates a new space of experience outside of opening times and familiar exhibition contexts. Friday March 26, 2021, from 7am on – start of the PASSAGE project in the Kaiserpassage in the center of Bonn. We start with: Schadenschnelldienst (2010), light installation by Gabriele Horndasch (Düsseldorf / GER) / Schnelltest (2021), site-specific video installation by Camenisch / Vetsch (Basel / CH) and paintings by Peter Kohl (AT) in cooperation with SZALCprojects, Bonn/ View attachment: Press Release PASSAGE
