The Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein’s special focus is contemporary art and its roots in modernism. Through presentations of works from the private collections of the Prince of Liechtenstein it also creates a link with the work of Old Masters. The Kunstmuseum develops its programme with a view to its dual role as both a national gallery and an educational institution.
Using our thematically oriented collection we aim to create new perspectives which allow the familiar and the unfamiliar, the old and the new, the local and the international to be seen in a new light. This creates complex, challenging situations that enable museum visitors to participate actively and develop new ways of seeing.
Our method is bringing together contemporary architecture, specific forms of presentation, a welcoming atmosphere and varied public programmes. Our goal is for this focus on art and its meanings to be taken up as an inspirational challenge.
Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft im BDI e.V.
The Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft im BDI e.V. (Association of Arts and Culture of the German Economy at the Federation of German Industries) has supported arts and culture since 1951 and campaigns for a society in which art is seen as an essential resource.
The Kulturkreis is the oldest institution for entrepreneurial support of the arts in Germany. With member contributions and donations from its approximately 400 members, amongst them leading German corporations, it supports artists in the areas of architecture, fine arts, literature and music. The focal point of advocacy is the support of young and still undiscovered artistic views. In addition to advocacy of emerging artists, the Kulturkreis initiates different innovative art projects. Moreover, at the intersection between economy and art, the Kulturkreis advises its member companies on issues such as philanthropic artist support, cultural sponsorship, cultural education, corporate collecting, and international art initiatives. The Kulturkreis also represents the cultural political interests of its members.
