Haus in Schwarz – The black house once existed in Möhringen

The building was a 2008 public art piece by artists Erik Sturm und Simon Jung in the city center. The house was to be demolished. So before that happened, with the support of the Karin Abt-Straubinger Foundation, two artists painted the house a matte black as an art piece. After demolition, the owner, art gallery manager Karin Abt-Straubinger built a new gallery where the house stood.
