Kunstverein is a not-for-profit membership organisation, a curatorial experiment and functioning domestic franchise with branches in Amsterdam, New York, Toronto, and Milan. Kunstverein aims to show practices, attempts and failures, of avant-garde artists (all ages) who have been undersung in contemporary art history. By creating a critical pool and exploring public-private relationships, we reflect upon the manner in which cultural practices are traditionally administered. Kunstverein offers exhibitions, presentations, performances, lectures, screenings, independent publishing and everything in between in tailor made mis-en-scenes. Due to our unconventional make-up, we manage to employ alternative methods in terms of presentation, hosting and exhibition making. Significantly and ultimately, Kunstverein aims to contribute in a novel fashion to the cultural scene in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and abroad.
Kunstverein is a women-led organisation that does not tolerate any form of misconduct or discriminatory behaviour: whether of a sexual, physical, verbal or racial nature. Come speak to us if you are worried about yourself or a person in your environment.
