In addition to the current exhibitions and events programmes, the Kunstverein Freiburg reference library offers a space for further education and information exchange. The collection, comprising over 10,000 copies of contemporary art publications, has been open to the public since 2011. Visitors are invited to garner a varied range of insights into the art scene from the mid-20th Century onwards. The collection focuses on exhibition catalogues from museums, Kunstverein partner institutions and galleries, which come into the possession of Kunstverein Freiburg as gifts or through exchanges.

Using the Library

On the Freiburg University Library online catalogue, entries from the Kunstverein’s collection are identifiable by a call number beginning ‘Frei 210’. Inquiries about publications can be made by phoning or emailing the office. In exceptional cases, individual titles can be issued as interlibrary loans.
