With its International Museum Fellowship programme, the Federal Cultural Foundation wishes to encourage dialogue between innovative thinkers and the established art sector. The programme, which runs until 2018, provides museums and collections in Germany the chance to host young international researchers and curators at their institution for one and a half years. The programme also supports the museums in developing new methods for presenting knowledge and establishing an international network. Together with the Museum of Natural History in Berlin, the Federal Cultural Foundation is developing the model project Art/Nature which commissions artists to create interventions at one of Europe’s most renowned museums of natural history from 2014 to 2018. Another project, the Humboldt Lab Dahlem, offers curators the chance to explore innovative ways of presenting ethnological collections and non-European artworks.
The Global Museum is a programme which supports projects by the Kunstsammlung NRW Düsseldorf, the Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, the MMK Frankfurt am Main and the Lenbachhaus Munich that present the history of modern art from a global perspective. And the new programme City Companions provides funding to city museums which develop new forms of participation-oriented museum work.
The documenta in Kassel and the Berlin Biennial are two of the most renowned exhibition series of contemporary art in Germany and are among the many projects funded by the Federal Cultural Foundation in the area of Image and Space.
