When we at Volkswagen support culture and the arts today, then we are taking responsibility for tomorrow.
Volkswagen Group Art4All
Time and time again, museum makers surprise us with innovative concepts and content. And so immersing oneself in art has long been worthwhile not only for enthusiasts, but also for curious viewers and newcomers.
With the Volkswagen Group Art4All initiative, Volkswagen supports cultural partners in making their offerings accessible to a broad public. Visitors to the Neue Nationalgalerie and the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart in Berlin as well as the Kunstmuseum in Wolfsburg regularly enjoy free admission and special guided tours, workshops and numerous special events.
10-jähriges Jubiläum MoMa-Kooperation
“We celebrate creativity” – this is the claim and standard of Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan. As one of the world’s most important venues for the art of our time, MoMA and MoMA PS1 are among the world’s most respected pioneers with their exhibitions and extensive educational programme.
As a long-standing partner, Volkswagen has contributed to many extraordinary experiences, including a Kraftwerk concert at MoMA, a show of Björk’s work or the presentation of the fascinating “Rain Room” installation. As the main partner of the education programme, Volkswagen also supports the development of new online formats for curious people all over the world.
Fostering young talent: Volkswagen Fellows
Since 2012, Volkswagen has regularly supported young scientific talent on their way into the art and culture scene. In cooperation with institutions such as the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart in Berlin and the phaeno science museum, the Volkswagen Fellows are directly involved in everyday museum life, they gain valuable experience and support the institutions with their respective expertise.
Cultural diversity around the world
With its global promotion of culture, Volkswagen is making art and culture accessible to millions of people. The promotion of cultural projects at the group’s sites is an expression of the social responsibility and the strengthening of cultural diversity in the various regions.
The support ranges from small collaborations to partnerships of international significance, as well as cooperations with major social relevance, such as Volkswagen Art4All from Wolfsburg to Berlin.
