The Kunststiftung Baden-Wuerttemberg
The Kunstbuero is part of the Stuttgart-based Kunststiftung Baden-Wuerttemberg. The Kunststiftung Baden-Wuerttemberg was established in 1977 as a non-profit organisation with limited liability. This legal form provides a broad financial and ideational basis for the Kunststiftung’s primary objective: the support of young artists from Baden-Wuerttemberg. Right from the start the Kunststiftung had 200 shareholders from all areas of public life.
An advisory board and a board of trustees govern the Kunststiftung Baden-Wuerttemberg; the former acts in the capacity of a board of directors, while the latter oversees the organisation’s activities. Both committees consist of representatives of all political parties, managers of cultural institutions, and artists. The general manager directs and coordinates the work of the Kunststiftung.
