25 years exhibition hall, 16 extraordinary exhibitions

The Oberhausen Gasometer can look back on 25 eventful years as Europe's highest exhibition hall with 16 exhibitions and over eight million visitors. Already with the opening of the first exhibition "Fire and Flame" on 22 July 1994, the gigantic gas storage facility made a name for itself as a "cathedral of industrial culture". Many internationally renowned artists have been inspired by the unique spatial experience, including Christo, who used the Gasometer twice for his installations "The Wall" (1999) and "Big Air Package" (2013). The exhibitions "Sternstunden" (2009/10), "Wunder der Natur" (2016/17) and "Der Berg ruft" (2018/19) developed as real crowd pullers. The following video gives a complete overview of all 16 exhibitions of the past 25 years.
