The foundation

The Cultural Foundation of Hesse (Hessische Kulturstiftung) is dedicated to the promotion and conservation of arts and culture in Hesse. Its main task is to support museums and public art collections, libraries and archives through the acquisition and the conservation of distinguished works of art, selected objects and entire art collections. The foundation may also foster issues of cultural heritage and documentaries thereof as well as various forms of the presentation of art and history. Beyond, Hessische Kulturstiftung serves particular tasks for the promotion of upcoming artists (§ 2 of the foundation’s statutes).

Please note that the programme of the foundation is exclusively directed towards non-governmental and non-for-profit organisations such as museums, archives and all other institutions working in the field of art and related topics.
