KUNZTEN for artists
KUNZTEN is an online magazine and digital platform for young art and culture. We focus on a thoughtful selection of emerging artists and on an accessible, informative and aesthetic mediation and presentation of creative content. We showcase outstanding and fascinating young artists from a wide range of artistic disciplines, from figurative and abstract painting to experimental photography and digital art.
For this purpose, we have created a multi-channel platform for creative content. In our online magazine, we publish an interview series called “An Artist Interview”, in which we portray young artists. In response to the pandemic, we also created our “VIEWING ROOM”, a virtual exhibition space where we showcase young art in digital space.
Our selection of artists is thoughtful and independent. Most important are the artistic potential and the innovative approach that emanates from the individual positions. It is especially important to us, without a profit-oriented approach, to highlight particularly exciting young artists and to offer them our platform.
KUNZTEN is diverse, innovative, transparent, educational and sustainable.
KUNZTEN stands for passion and quality.
In our online magazine – where you will find our series "An Artist Interview" – we offer a deep insight into the working methods of young and emerging as well as established artists. We are fascinated by what moves contemporary artists, how they work and their artistic vision: how do they approach new works or series of works? How do they work as artists, exploring and developing art? What influences affect their work? For us, the most exciting thing about the new generation of artists is precisely this wide range of conceptual backgrounds and approaches to their work.
In the articles we show exhibition views, reproductions of the works and pictures from the visits to the artists' studios. In this way we provide a free and accessible, informative insight into the world of fascinating artists and offer a glimpse into the center of their work – the artist's studio.
Due to the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, many exhibition opportunities have been eliminated. Therefore, we have designed our digital exhibition space "VIEWING ROOM" to provide a digital space for young artists in times of pandemic. The Online Viewing Room is mainly focused on Young Painting, but digital art, photography and conceptual art also find a platform in our virtual exhibition space.
The aim of our online exhibitions is not only to present and portray individual great artists, but to put these young positions in context with each other. Additionally, we do not only intend to show art on our online platform, but also to present it in an informative, explanatory and descriptive way. Thus, parallel to the exhibition, articles are published in our online magazine, which introduce the artists and explain the works shown.
Thematized is the genesis of the artwork, explained what its conceptual background is and how the artist approached the work. It is important for us to explain how the creative process of the work of art was and who the artist behind the work is. The artistic content is shown and presented in the digital space in a comprehensible and vivid way.
