Dear KUN:ST friends

We have already the first warm days of this years spring season and that marks the starting point of the spring art season

General Annual Meeting

Last Saturday we hold our General Annual Meeting 2019 and here first a big thank you to all our association members for their numerous participation and thank you to the many helpers for the organization and to all speakers for their contributions. We will report on the results in a special newsletter and also distribute the protocol of the meeting.

Here only so much, that after more than three years of association's history we actually see that some of our longest serving members pass the baton to the next generation and at this point a heartfelt thank you to Inge Louven, Michael Weick, Dietmar Schönherr, Dr. Marion Vogt, Jörg Kraus and Wolfgang Haack, who hand over their tasks to others after successful terms of work and support.

At the same time, the management board, the art advisory board and the auditing team has been strengthened and expanded:


There are exciting weeks ahead of us. Now right at the beginning of the month, we are opening the large solo show WEIRD WIRED _ STRANGE CONNECTED with artworks by Christine Elbe. We chose this exhibition as a pilot to start making our KUN:ST Quartier better known. We have printed and distributed more than 10,000 invitations in Leonberg and neighboring communities. So it could be tight if we invite to the

Art Prize 2019

Our Art Prize exhibition is coming up and the excitement increases. There are 88 artists and 88 artworks that finally entered the 2019 Art Prize competition in the categories of painting, photography and three-dimensional objects, and will be exhibited shown in our Art Prize exhibition at ARTe Sindelfingen 2019.

In its last board meeting, the board decided to award an additional special prize in the category of painting, the selection of which will be taken over by our newly elected board artistic director Manfred Alex-Lambrinos and his deputy Ruth Schleeh.

There is a really great catalog with all artworks and comments of the artists: https://kun-st-international.de/kunst-preis-katalog-2019/

The award ceremony will take place at the ARTe Sindelfingen on Sunday, March 24, 11:30 am at the KUN:ST International booth X4 in the pavilion of the upper floor. And because I'm often asked that question: the selection of the winners will take place on the day before by the jury and therefore the race is completely open until March 23 :-)

After ARTe the exhibition moves to our gallery in Leonberg and we have the show opening of the ART Prize exhibition on the last day of the month, March 31st, 2 pm and this show we'll also present during the Lange Kunstnacht (LAKUNA) on April 6th.

KUN:ST Dialogue

Already our KUN:ST Dialogue in February with the sculptor Gunther Stilling was a very special highlight. But in march, our art advisor Thea Bayer-Rossi tops it again as she invited for us on Thursday, 14th of March, 6 pm, the Heilbronn museum director Dr. med. Marc Gundel on the subject of art in public space; quo vadis art museums?

Dr. Marc Gundel studied art history and in 2004, at the age of 34, he was elected director of the Städtischen Museen Heilbronn. Directed by Dr. Gundel the museums in Heilbronn became clearly one of the best in Baden Württemberg. In his time the Kunsthalle Vogelmann was opened with important and very successful exhibitions of e.g. J. Beuys or M. Lüpertz.

Registrations for KUN:ST Dialog are welcome:
