New responsible for press, communications and mediation at WKV

Photo: Lukas Pürmayr

We are pleased to introduce Jolanda Bozzetti as WKV's new responsible for press, communications and mediation. Bozzetti studied literature-art-media and philosophy as well as art history in Constance, Freiburg, Basel and Vienna. As a curator and art mediator, she has worked for the Regionale in Freiburg, the Bucerius Kunst Forum in Hamburg, the Kunstpalais Erlangen, and the Kunstmuseum Basel, among others. She has also worked as a freelance journalist for several years.

Covid Regulations

Due to the pandemic, access to the Württembergischer Kunstverein is unfortunately restricted. From November 17, 2021, the 2G rule will apply to visitors. Prerequisite for a visit is then the proof of a complete vaccination or recovery. In addition, a mask must be worn. We ask for your understanding.

Rosario Weiss Academy

It is with great pleasure that we announce our new mediation format for young people: the Rosario Weiss Academy. It can serve as a preparation for art studies but also as an extension or supplement to a field of study or training. The reference point are the changing exhibitions of the Kunstverein.

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.
