Newsletter englisch
Dear [KUN:ST] artists

Today is a particularly 'heavy' newsletter, because we announce a lot of new projects and exhibitions. These include a new New York project, the 2019 Christmas exhibition Merry Christmas, a pilot project for the regionalization of our [KUN:ST] Quartier International activities, the finalization of our booth at the ARTe Wiesbaden art fair and our Sommerfest on August 10th in Leonberg. As always, reading helps :-)

Sommerfest (Summer party) in the [KUN:ST] Quartier on the 10th of August

On August 5th, 2018, we opened our [KUN:ST] Quartier in Leonberg with a summer party. This outstanding and probably unique event of our association's history is coming to its first anniversary and this is reason enough for our second Sommerfest: we celebrate the anniversary of the opening of our [KUN:ST] Quartier - and of course we celebrate ourselves - on Saturday, 10th August 2019 from 2pm to 6pm. At this time, we are showing an exhibition with artworks by artists of the art association Artifex, and we extend our invitations to all Artifex artists - and of course we invite our best customers.

Exhibitions Memento Mori and Louvens ARTCircle

In the month of June we will be hosting at [KUN:ST] Quartier our Inge Louven with her Louvens ARTCircle. Louvens Art Circle was founded in 2013 by Inge Louven as an international artist group of Galerie Atelier TonArt AG. Artists, who are regularly represented in the gallery, present their highlights of the year. In the exhibition in Leonberg seven of the artists are present: Nadia Heitmar (CH), Andreas Hürlimann (CH), Chris Pierre Labüsch (CH), Karin Pinato (CH), Inge Louven (CH), Eckhard Besuden (D), Vero Munin Luck (D) and Max Seiz (D). The management of the [KUN:ST] Quartier and the entire board cordially invite you to the Vernissage on Sunday, 2 June 2019 at 2 pm.

From the 11th to the 23rd of June 2019 we exhibit together with the Danish art association K2 under the exhibition theme Memento Mori in the Helligåndshuset in Copenhagen. The exhibition is open daily from 10am to 5pm. Participating [KUN:ST] artists are Lone Bech, Daniela Benz, Ulrike Buck, Gabriele Bürger, Elke Emmert, Marlis G Schill, Barbara Ihme, Brigitte Jaeckel, Jörg Kraus, Margareta Anna Leuthardt-Schwager, Verena Mayer-Kolbinger, Ute Meyer, Ilse Mittermeier, Sabine Rassow, Henny Schlüter, Betty Schmidt, Anja Struck and Eva Vogt. We invite you to join the Vernissage on June 11, 2019, 6:00 pm.

In autumn 2019 we want to pilot a new and big topic. The core idea of ​ this pilot is a regionalization of [KUN:ST] International activities and offers. Exhibitions and academy offers of the association are to take place not only in Stuttgart / Leonberg, but also in geographically different regions. Our artist Martina Unterharnscheidt runs a small art hotel - with an adjoining art space - in Bad Münstereifel, which offers us the space for the first implementation of this idea.

[KUN:ST] International organizes the exhibition "rein stofflich" from October 12th to November 24th, 2019 at the Kunst + Hotelchen an der Rauschen (https://www.hotelchen-an-der-rauschen.de/) and invites [KUN:ST] International artists to apply for this exhibition.

On November 23, [KUN:ST] International and its [KUN:ST] Academy will be offering the workshop Artists Self-Marketing in Bad Münstereifel. Content of the one-day workshop is a summary of the main topics on self-promotion website, artist's CV, pricing, applications, exhibitions and fairs.

Art Fair Participation

For the remainder of 2019 we have now planned two art fair participations. On the one hand, the association participates in the ARTe Wiesbaden from 20.-22. September 2019. The booth size there can be determined according to the status of the registrations. Artists may register for our booth at ARTe up to June 30th, 2019. Wall sizes of 3, 4 or 6 meters are available. The cost per meter is 135 euros. A shipment of the artworks from and to Leonberg can be organized. This project is managed by our Petra Schmidt and therefore please send registrations directly to Petra (petra.sail@gmail.com)..

At the beginning of October, we also participate in the art fair 'Kunst für Alle' in Copenhagen. Like the exhibition Memento Mori in June, we do this together with the art association K2 from Copenhagen. We accept applications on our website:
