Kunstverein is a women-led not-for-profit membership organisation, a publishing house, a curatorial office based in Amsterdam and a domestic franchise with sisters in Aughrim, Toronto, Milan and (soon to be rebooted) New York. Since its founding in 2009, Kunstverein has aimed to celebrate practices—their attempts and failures—of avant-garde artists and designers of all ages who have been undersung in contemporary art history or who work at the fringes of divergent disciplines. By working against the drive to produce calendar-based programming and in refuting the exhibition as the format that sits at the top of the food chain, Kunstverein offers presentations, performances, lectures, dinners, bar nights, screenings, independent publishing and everything in between in tailor made mise-en-scènes that reflect upon the manner in which cultural practices are traditionally administered. Significantly and ultimately, Kunstverein aims to contribute in a novel fashion to the cultural scene in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and abroad.

Stichting Kunstverein enjoys a cultural ANBI status. You can read our Code of Conduct here, our Privacy Policy here, our Annual Report here and take a look at our Financial Report here.

Kunstverein 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.
