Kunststadt Nürnberg
10 Jahre Kunstvilla

€17.27 (excl. VAT)

Opened in 2014, the Kunstvilla closed a gap in Nuremberg's museum landscape and has since made the once stately Marienvorstadt district, which is now characterised by new buildings, more attractive. Due to its history as a hop merchant's and banker's villa built at the end of the 19th century and owned by Jews, the Kunstvilla is not only a listed building that has been extensively renovated, but also a historical monument to Nuremberg's Jewish history. As the art museum of the city of Nuremberg, the Kunstvilla looks after the holdings of the municipal art collections of artists from the date of birth in 1880 to the present day with a connection to Nuremberg through their birth, work or death. The overarching goal of using the collection to depict Nuremberg's art history in the modern era is further completed with each new addition. The collection, which previously consisted almost exclusively of paintings and sculptures, is increasingly being opened up to new media, techniques and materials across all genres.

Research, preservation and interpretation culminate in exhibition projects, of which the Kunstvilla has been able to show around 40 since it was founded: from small monographic one-room exhibitions to large group exhibitions with over 50 participants. The alternation of historical exhibitions and the presentation of contemporary art takes centre stage, as does the focus on collaboration with Nuremberg artists' groups.
This volume presents the Kunstvilla as a repository of the past and a source of inspiration for the present based on the exhibitions shown in the ten years of its existence.
