Hamburger Kunstverein

The Hamburger Kunstverein was founded in 1817 and thus belongs to one of the oldest art associations in Germany. The non-profit association is committed to the mediation of contemporary art and is one of the first places to go to for art lovers in Hamburg. 

Since 1993 the Hamburger Kunstverein is located at Klosterwall, hidden between central station and Deichtorhallen. However, under the direction of Bettina Steinbrügge, the repertoire has to do anything but hide. In the former market hall renowned artists from all over the world come together to show their artistic positions in a room, that gives their works the perfect space for contemplation. Looking for a new place for inspiration? The Hamburger Kunstverein is such a place! Spread over two floors, especially young artists surprise with new ideas linked to the question of the meaning of contemporary art.

The exhibitions on site always reflect a specific feeling of society. Famous artists like Olafur Eliasson, Liam Gillick, Cosima von Bonin and Andrea Fraser have already displayed their work at the cities "art mile" between Deichtorhallen and Kunsthalle. This year the association is celebrating its 200th anniversary. With an anniversary exhibition by Wolfgang Tillmans the Hamburger Kunstverein will attract many old and new fans!
