DESCRIPTION

The Kunstverein Hamburg is one of the oldest art societies in Germany. Since 1817 it has dedicated itself to presenting and conveying contemporary art, which has led to early exhibitions of artists such as Caspar David Friedrich, Arnold Böcklin and Francis Bacon. With no permanent collection of its own, the changing exhibitions of the Kunstverein react to current trends and socially-relevant subject matter. Centrally located in a former market hall, the Kunstverein presents young international artists as well as established artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Hans Arp/Franz West, Liam Gillick, Cosima von Bonin, Sarah Lucas and Karla Black.
