an institute for the exhibition of international contemporary art
the kestnergesellschaft, located in the center of Hanover, is one of the largest and most well known art associations in Germany. The kestnergesellschaft has maintained its existence since its foundation in 1916 despite the commotions and the explosive artistic, social and technical developments of the 20th century. In the 21st century it remains our goal to present important international artists with their latest works.
The contemporary visual landscape – which not only includes art, but also architecture, fashion or design – is our central interest, along with current music, literature or the theoretical positions of philosophy and the humanities.
