With its focus on new media art, the Edith Russ House is special in northern Germany. It sees itself as a place of presentation and communication that deals with media in contemporary art practice.

Innovative and experimental positions of international contemporary art are shown in a regularly changing exhibition programme. Presentations, artist talks and workshops promote public discourse on contemporary art and its relationship to the social reality in which it is created.

The international scholarship programme for media art of the Foundation of Lower Saxony at the Edith Russ House enables the realisation of three new artistic projects each year.

The exhibition house, founded in 2000, goes back to a foundation by Edith Maria Russ, a student councillor from Oldenburg, who bequeathed her fortune to the city with the stipulation of creating a house "for art in transition to the new millennium". The ERH is a municipal exhibition house owned by the city of Oldenburg and receives a grant from the Foundation of Lower Saxony
