  • At the Kunstsammlung, the art with its unique characteristics and qualities occupies the center of attention.
  • We regard the Kunstsammlung as a setting for developing interactive processes – both between works of art and between artworks and the architectonic environment.
  • Our approach fosters active participation. We trust in the competence of each individual, and this attitude is expressed through our openness and curiosity in relation to the impulses which others bring to this institution.
  • We believe in the power of art to educate and to transform, to instigate new modes of thought, and to enrich people through novel forms of experience.
  • Through art, we strive to forge ahead toward the new and the unfamiliar.
  • We seek to connect art with real life.
