Neuer Berliner Kunstverein

n.b.k. is a Berlin-based place for contemporary art and discourse production. Founded in 1969 with the goal of presenting contemporary fine art to a broader public, it invites people to take action into cultural processes.

Stressing the social importance of current art, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) promotes recent developments in the art world. Its programme of exhibitions provides a variety of discursive approaches in the theory and practice of art and examines in depth Berlin’s cultural life. With no doubts, n.b.k. places itself as a leading platform for the young art scene in Germany’s capital city.
The n.b.k. is funded by the LOTTO-Stiftung Berlin.
