Shaping the future—facilitating ZKM and HfG has been the goal of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Kunst und Medientechnologie for more than twenty years.
The development fund was founded by involved citizens and public figures in 1988, one year before the actual founding of the ZKM. With their contributions, the 400-plus members support young artists at the ZKM and students of the HfG Karlsruhe. Over the past 23 years, there have been more than 100 young, especially talented scholarship recipients.
The annual awarding of scholarships presents the ceremonial highlight of funding activities. Likewise offered financial support are interesting catalogue productions, diverse events, and art projects by both institutions. Supporting the Karlsruhe “beacons” ZKM and HfG ideologically and materially and thereby anchoring them solidly in awareness in Karlsruhe and far beyond are declared goals of the foundation. Benefits for members of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Kunst, among others, include special exhibition tours, invitations to exclusive events, and free use of the ZKM_VIP Lounge, in addition to special discounts on admission and publications.
