Residency Baden-Württemberg – Catalonia

We are very pleased to announce that in 2022 the artist exchange between Baden-Württemberg and Catalonia takes place for the eighth time. The artists Juan Davíd Galindo and Albert Gironès López have been selected from Catalonia. Both will live and work in Stuttgart from August until September 2022. In turn, the Baden-Württemberg artists Saskia Fischer and Selma Khadija will live and work in Barcelona from September till October 2022.

Administration of WKV moved to Werastrasse 28

As the old wing of the Kunstgebäude Stuttgart is being renovated, the administration of the Württembergischer Kunstverein had to move. For about two years it is located at Werastrasse 28, 70182 Stuttgart, directly opposite the Cranko School. The exhibition venue of the Kunstverein in the Kunstgebäude at the Schlossplatz is not affected by the renovation measures. Due to the current corona regulations, it unfortunately can be used recently only in ghost mode.
