Founded in 1978, the Circle of Patrons has been a huge support to the Kunsthalle zu Kiel with its activities.
Thanks to this initiative, the building was expanded in 1986. The Circle of Patrons acquires at least one work by an important contemporary artist each year and therefore significantly supports the Kunsthalle’s collection policy, which is firmly committed to contemporary art. Recent acquisitions include works by Miriam Cahn, Alicja Kwade and Jeppe Hein. These works are on permanent loan to the Kunsthalle collection.
The Circle of Patrons also offers informative and stimulating evenings in the Kunsthalle as well as trips to international art hubs.
