Kunstring Folkwang

The Kunstring Folkwang e.V., founded in 1901 initially as a museum association, has since 1924 worked exclusively in the communication of art in the Museum Folkwang Essen. Through its rich educational program (guided tours, courses, publications etc.) it aims especially to inform and educate the general public about the art collections and temporary exhibitions of the Museum Folkwang. Through lectures, excursions and the edition of objects for sale, it aims to increase understanding of all aspects of art. 

The Kunstring Folkwang organizes ca. 200 events per year, thus supporting and encouraging efforts in the areas of music, dance and theatre and therefore carrying on the Folkwang ideal of Karl Ernst Osthaus. In doing so, the Kunstring Folkwang makes a major contribution to the Folkwang Museum’s public relations.

Membership is open to all.
