Kunstverein München is one of the oldest and, with over 1,300 members, largest institutions of its kind in Germany. With its spaces located in the historical arcades of the Hofgarten, it has not only been an integral part of Munich’s art scene since its founding in 1823, but has also gained international recognition as an innovative and controversial platform for contemporary art.

Kunstvereins were not only spaces for presenting contemporary art, but primarily for social exchange where a critical awareness of “contemporaneity” could develop through an active engagement with the art of the time. It is precisely this central notion of a vital social exchange on uncertain cultural terrain that still defines the Kunstverein’s work as an indispensable force in the international network of cultural institutions. 

Exhibitions at Kunstverein München include Diamond Stingily: Wall Sits (2019), Pati Hill: Something other than either, the group exhibition Not Working – Artistic production and matters of class (both 2020), and Patricia L. Boyd: Hold (2021). Current and upcoming exhibitions are Maximiliane Baumgartner’s Auf Fassaden schauen oder Die vierte Wand der dritten Pädagogin and a solo exhibition by Bea Schlingelhoff (September 2021).
