Kasseler Kunstverein

  • Gerade geschlossen

The Kasseler Kunstverein was founded in 1835 as an independent forum for the promotion and communication of contemporary art. He was one of the first of his kind in Germany and is in the tradition of civic engagement.

Today the Kunstverein, with its 500 square meter exhibition space in the city center on the ground floor of the Museum Fridericianums, offers artists a unique field of experimentation.

The annual program of up to four exhibitions is voluntarily developed and realized by a curatorial board. The focus is on solo exhibitions of supraregional and international artists.

In addition, there are numerous cooperation projects such as the annual Media Art Exhibition Monitoring, the presentation of the Arnold Bode Prize of the City of Kassel and the Kasseler Kunstpreises der Dr. med. Wolfgang Zippel Foundation, the Kasseler Spielsalon, theater projects, performances and concerts.

The current membership is 482 members.
