When first founded, the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart gave a platform to new art forms, introducing sound, video, and performance at a time when new media practices were emergent and challenged the conventions of many cultural institutions. The support of the members nurtures this legacy, but also advances it and reexamines the potentialities, needs, and urgencies of artistic production and cultural work in the present. The role of the membership is thereby central to the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart as an art institution that emphasizes a critical awareness of its own operative structures and methods.

Artists occupy key positions throughout the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, and it is the membership—the large majority of members being artists or practitioners who maintain artistic criteria at the core of their work—who are uniquely equipped to reconsider governance from the perspective of producers. Founded through the legal-economic structures of association law in Germany, association members’ voting rights have always been a core function in how the institution is governed. Members have the chance to engage directly in the organization and implementation of their individual and collective interests by voting, and raising agenda items to be voted on, at the annual General Meeting. In addition to the agency that comes with maintaining voting rights in a typical Kunstverein structure, association members of the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart also oversee the production facilities located onsite in the same building that houses the exhibition galleries and administrative offices. Consequently, artists occupy a crucial position at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart that closely interrelates institutional governance and the immediate conditions for the production, distribution, and reception of art.

By joining the membership at any of the distinct levels of support offered, your financial contribution sustains and advances the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, so that it may continue to be a unique Stuttgart institution that houses workshop facilities and artist studios, while also presenting the most challenging art of our time through its exhibition program.

4th organ

At the general assembly on March 25, 2021, the members collectively voted to meet regularly as an association from now on.

 

These meetings are intended to establish a space for understanding between the membership and the advisory board. A board for initiatives, critiques, and visions, a space for discourse between artistic and institutional practice, and possibly a step towards making the oft-cited hive hum a few decibels louder.

 

These regular meetings are organized by the advisory board of the Künstlerhaus. Questions or suggestions are welcome to be sent in advance to the Advisory Board at beirat@kuenstlerhaus.de.

 

These meetings are open to all members and those who would like to become members.

Next date:

 

June 4, 2024, 7 pm
