This mission is fulfilled with the help of comprehensive accompanying and education programmes and through the production of art works for respective exhibitions. The Heidelberger Kunstverein was founded in 1869 and is now supported by more than 800 members, ideologically and financially.

In the end of every calendar year the Heidelberger Kunstverein offers Editions from artists, whose works we exhibited throughout the year. The Editions, which were created for the most part in the context of the newest exhibitions, show as a brief summary the diversity of the topics and the media, which the presented artists use in their work. Purchasing one of the Editions you not only bring joy to yourself or to someone whom you give it as a present, but also support the work of the Kunstverein and the artists, and make a significant contribution to the advancement of the artistic activity and cultural diversity.
