Mission statement

The Heidelberger Kunstverein (HdKV) is dedicated to the exhibition, new production and mediation of regional and (inter)national contemporary art. For more than 150 years, artists of their time have been able to be experienced and discovered here. At the same time, the HDKV aims to act as a public forum for combining aesthetic and social issues and as a lively platform for civil society. In addition to its work on exhibitions, this is achieved through extensive accompanying and educational programmes, which are often based on networks
and initiatives.

With approximately 800 members, the HDKV is one of the art associations with the most members in relation to the number of inhabitants in Heidelberg in Germany.

Heidelberger Kunstverein is a member of Kunst Heidelberg

Architecture

In a spacious, light-flooded hall in the heart of Heidelberg's old town, the Heidelberger Kunstverein presents contemporary art on three floors. The building, designed by architect Dieter Quast and awarded a plaque by the Association of German Architects, opened its doors in 1990.

The Kunstverein is located together with the Kurpfälzisches Museum in an idyllic courtyard, accessible from Hauptstraße 97.

Our premises are also available for rent.
