Künstlerhaus Dortmund

The Künstlerhaus Dortmund has been run by artists since 1983 as a studio house and exhibition venue for contemporary and experimental art in self-organization.

The Künstlerhaus is the venue for works of all art genres – painting, sculpture and graphics as well as photography, film, video, room installations and new media. This spectrum is reflected both in the fields of work of the members and in the exhibitions, which are organized by the members as group exhibitions with external artists.

In addition to local museums, art associations and galleries with their traditional individual presentations or primarily economic interests, the Künstlerhaus enlivens the art scene of Dortmund with a unique place in this form. The Künstlerhaus creates a free space for art, offers artists from home and abroad a good working atmosphere and reduces threshold fears among visitors through direct mediation.

The Künstlerhaus lives from the active cooperation of the association members, who, by taking over a studio, commit themselves to voluntary commitment, among other things, for the design and organization of the exhibition program. The output of events has increased continuously over the years, so that a professional organizational structure became necessary. Since 1998, there has been a management that supports the association in its work.

The Künstlerhaus is regularly used by international guests for work stays and location-related new productions. Since 2005, an approximately two-month summer residence with a final presentation for an international artist selected by a jury of the house has been an integral part of the program. As a result, and due to the interdisciplinary orientation of the Künstlerhaus Dortmund, a constantly growing network of contacts is established with various cultural institutions in the region as well as with international institutions.
