For many years, the Kunsthalle Mannheim has succesfully collaborated a number of businesses. The Kunsthalle’s interest in working closely with current themes and their innovative exhibitions and programs plays an important role. Exploring and debating current themes and viewpoints creates an inclusive atmosphere in the development of art, culture and society.
There is a long history of civic engagement at the Kunsthalle Mannheim, which it has depended on ever since it was founded by director Fritz Wichert. Without the support of the people of Mannheim, his ground-breaking acquisition of Manet’s “The Execution of Emperor Maximilian of Mexico” in 1910 would have never been possible, for example. Today, the Kunsthalle Mannheim relies on various kinds of help from individuals and businesses alike. With the help of support from the Friends of the Kunsthalle Mannheim, the museum can continue to work on the preservation and development of its collection: Since the Friends were founded in 1977, the purchase of over 110 artworks and 150 objects for the ceramics collection has been made possible, which the Kunsthalle Association have made available for loan. Another opportunity to get involved is the “adopt a painting” project run by the Friends.
The Kunsthalle Mannheim Foundation, in conjunction with the Benefactors’ Circle (founded in 2017), helps the Kunsthalle to realize special exhibitions and promote research and publication projects.
This additional support makes it possible to realize fantastic exhibitions, acquisitions, special institutional responsibilities, and important research and publication projects.
