we promote young art

The Prima Kunst association gives young artists the opportunity to exhibit in unique spaces in Kiel. We mainly invite national and international artists to develope the dialouge about art in Kiel.

we talk about young art

We discuss with and about young artists in terms of current statements to art and culture. From that we want to draw the most possible and broad potential for our intern (artist to artist) and extern (genereal society) dialogue.

we organise young art

The Prima Kunst association is an independant, nonprofit and registered association. We members work together in teams to originate different activities or exhibitions in various temporary spaces as well as in our established overseas Container in the city gallery in Kiel.

long text for the press

The special interest of the association Prima Kunst is the support and the promotion of young and contemporary art. Thus Prima Kunst offers a platform for artists and people interested in art. As part of the association’s objective, different exhibitions in cooperation with international artists are organized regularly. The main exhibition site is an overseas container, which has been located in the Stadtgalerie Kiel since 2002. Alongside the regular exhibition program we host special performance events and work in close collaboration with other artist-run spaces in Kiel and other cities. Prima Kunst is steadily looking for further possibilities to present young art to the public in order to strengthen Kiel as one of the most important sites for art in Schleswig-Holstein. These programs are also essential to improve social cooperations and to stimulate the mutual exchange. The society consists of a motivated, young team whose members are employed in creative occupations or study art. Therefore we aim at gaining a highly versatile potential and new inspirational artworks from our cooperations with young artists.
