Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG) is situated in the south-west part of the city in a former industry building on Lorenzstraße. The 320 meter-long building is hard to overlook. ZKM is housed in the same building. The entrance on the west side is located on Lorenzstraße. The entrance on the east side is opposite the newly-built job agency and federal prosecutor’s office.

Where is the Blaue Salon at HfG?

The cinema is located in the "Hallenbau" where ZKM, HfG and MNK are housed. You will find us on the first floor of the Hochschule für Gestaltung, Lichthof 4, room 012.

Detailed description: Go into the building of the Hochschule für Gestaltung (entrance Lorenzstraße 15, main entrance). Cross the large atriums until you are approximately in the middle of the hall-like structure. When you see a large display board with the cinema program, you have found us.
