About Us

The Kunstverein Ludwigshafen was founded in 1928, making it one of the oldest art associations in Germany. In recent decades, the association has succeeded in establishing itself as one of the best-known platforms for contemporary art in Rhineland-Palatinate and further expanding its supra-regional appeal. Ludwigshafen am Rhein is a city traditionally characterized by migration. The diversity of cultures, nationalities, and religions of its population is particularly present in the Mitte district, where the Kunstverein Ludwigshafen is located. In addition to 4-6 exhibitions of contemporary art, the institution is increasingly focusing on a wide-ranging program of events with formats such as artist talks, panel discussions, lectures, performances, concerts, and workshops for children and adults.

The unARTig youth art school, founded in 2008, is another pillar of the Kunstverein's educational program. With an extensive range of practical activities for children and young people, the youth art school aims to awaken enthusiasm for contemporary art and support opportunities for cultural education. It promotes a playful, open approach to art and artistic practice. The children are encouraged and supported by experienced art teachers and artists. The Kunstverein's exhibitions always provide the decisive impetus.
