Founded in 1823, Kunstverein München is the oldest public art institution in Munich. “And still, this is the place to encounter the most recent developments in art,” Patrizia says. “It’s always surprising, always inspirational.” The non-profit art association focuses on contemporary art, showcasing solo and group exhibitions from international artists with an eye for local context. The gallery space hosts regular exhibitions, lectures, artists talks, symposia, film screenings and publications. Kunstverein München is located in the Hofgarten, just a stone’s throw from the Residenz Palace.
