The Kunstraum München eV was founded in 1973 as a non-profit art association for the exhibition and documentation of contemporary art. It emerged from the "Friends of Fine Arts" association, founded in 1926. Today the association has about 300 members. The content-related conception and organizational implementation of the program is carried out by the honorary board, supported by freelancers. The art space sees itself as a platform for young contemporary art. The focus is on the exhibition of works by international and regional artists and the publication of accompanying catalogs and editions.
