Künstlerhaus Stuttgart

The Künstlerhaus Stuttgart is an institution in Stuttgart that — through its unique arrangement as a production site for artistic creation and as a platform for art-theoretical discourse — has both earned international renown and become an irreplaceable site of exchange for the local art scene. Its success rests on its independently run, yet cooperating areas – the artistic direction and the workshops. The artistic direction is responsible for the artistic program. Members have access to the Künstlerhaus’ workshop facilities.

The non-profit organization Künstlerhaus Stuttgart Reuchlinstraße e.V was founded in 1978 on the initiative of visual artists. Interdisciplinary work should be made possible in the workshops equipped for this purpose and in additional workrooms in the Reuchlinstrasse building; a dialogue among those producing the work is encouraged. The Künstlerhaus Stuttgart offered the first video studio as well as the first art video library in Baden-Württemberg.

The Reuchlinstrasse building, which was a fabrication site for leather goods and travel articles at the beginning of the past century, fell into the hands on the city in 1938 and was used for various things in the following years. After renovation in 1984, work in the newly-designed spaces could begin. The positions of the artistic direction and the upper management were separated in 1985.The Künstlerhaus is a registered non-profit organization supported by the city of Stuttgart. Annual membership dues are 25 Euro. Members have the opportunity to work in the in-house workshops and to bring their projects to fruition.

In addition to serving as the venue for Künstlerhaus and the artistic direction’s events, the second floor will be now on be available as a forum for the presentation of interesting artistic positions, offering the possibility to conduct evening or weekend events in the VISIT series. The space is not intended for exhibitions; but rather for music, performances, lectures, etc, that express current artistic positions or developments and directions within contemporary discourse.

Interested members may apply to the managing directors of the Künstlerhaus. Decisions will be made by the newly-founded group consisting of Künstlerhaus members, the management and the Künstlerhaus’ artistic director. All members are invited to actively take part in the cooperation. Each project application should include a short event proposal, time frame, participants and goal, as well as information on the financial framework and technical equipment.

Event organization is administered by the applicant in coordination with Benno Löning/the management. Dates will be discussed with Elke aus dem Moore/the artistic direction. Financial support in the amount of up to 300€ for each event is possible, and the Künstlerhaus’ equipment can also be used.


generell information
