The UL sees itself as the central point of the university, where study, teaching and research are connected.

With our open exhibition concept we would like to contribute to
present the work of the various UDE faculties.

As a cultural institution, we are of course also open to the urban community.
Whoever exhibits with us will be seen.

University and Mercator: The famous cartographer in the reform concept of the Comprehensive University of Duisburg

The exhibition of the University Archive shows numerous photos, documents and objects from the Duisburg comprehensive university period (1972-2003). The focus is on the implementation of the education reform concept of the North Rhine-Westphalian state government at the Duisburg university, where the personality Gerhard Mercator played a leading role in image cultivation.
