Kunstverein Kunstverein Kunstverein

Kunstverein is turning fifteen this year! Eyelinered and a little awkward, we’re marking the occasion with a look back at our nascent beginnings. In cooperation with the auction house Christie's, we are organizing a benefit auction to support our future programming from April 9 until April 23, 2024. Fifteen selected works by artists who have significantly influenced the history of Kunstverein over the past decade-and-a-half will be featured, while an additional five offer a glimpse of what’s up ahead.

Artists to be featured in the contemporary art auction include among others Hreinn Friðfinnsson, Joe Gibbons, GB Jones, Richard Kostelanetz, Zapp Magazine, Martin Maloney, Willem Oorebeek, Lisa Oppenheim, Adam Pendleton, TV Bar (Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff), Lucy Skaer, Cauleen Smith, Jennifer Tee, Mr. Peanut/Vincent Trasov, Nora Turato, Robert Wilhite, and Geo Wyex.

Visit the auction catalogue to place your bids. Proceeds from the auction will be shared with the participating artists and will support Kunstverein’s 2025–26 presenting season.
