Member's Jour Fixe

The monthly member’s jour fixe is an open forum dedicated to a variety of topics. Current and upcoming exhibitions are discussed here as well as current affairs of the Kunstverein or his work beyond the public business. General concerns of art, cultural policy, society, etc. are also the subject of discussion. The members are expressly invited to suggest topics or to present their own ideas, questions or projects. For example, artist members regularly give insights into their most recent projects.




WKV at other places - visiting the HuMBase
Guided tour

In the course of our Member's Jour Fixe we visit HuMBase in November - a cultural project initiated by Hannah Häußer and Maximilian Borchert (HuM-Collective) in 2018. HuMBase is looking for gaps in urban spaces in order to exploit their potential and to test and establish new formats. Currently the project is located in a former church in the north of Stuttgart. 
We gain an insight into the project and visit the exhibition Innenarchitekturen by the artists Rosa Rücker and David Semper of the Kunstverein Gästezimmer.
Please note that the interiors of the former church are not heated.

The choreographer and filmmaker has portrayed refugees and volunteers from the Stuttgart region as part of his music and dance project "Menschen tanzen" in 2017/2018.
