Information

The Kunsthalle Darmstadt, supported by one of the oldest art associations in Germany, promotes the new and seeks the common. This is our mission – for the citizens of the city, neighbors in the region, and guests from afar. Founded in 1833/37, and thus one of the oldest art associations in Germany, the Kunstverein Darmstadt e.V. has a long tradition. During the pre-March era, a citizenry, emancipating itself, wished to provide a framework for fine art and therefore for itself, besides courtly theater and music institutions. The driving force behind this foundation was printer and engraver Jakob Felsing (1802–1883), who had returned to Darmstadt in 1832 after a ten-year stay in Italy; he directed the Kunstverein until 1876.
