The long-term commitment of the Federal State of Vorarlberg,
under whose auspices KUB
operates, has been a fundamental
prerequisite for KUB’s successful work. The Vorarlberger Kulturhäuser Betriebsgesellschaft mbH as central service provider has
played a decisive role.
The Association of the Friends of KUB
has been a significant
partner since the founding of the institution. The association
in realizing its concept and in particular the implementation of its educational program.
During 2015 too, Vorarlberger Kraftwerke AG, the principle
sponsor of Kunsthaus Bregenz, has made a significant contribution
to the financing of the large-scale shows of work. Hypo Landesbank
Vorarlberg has also been a long-term KUB
sponsor. In addition the
Zumtobel company has been a crucial partner, continually support-
ing Kunsthaus Bregenz for many years, particularly in implementing
exhibitions and projects involving light. UNIQA
is an additional
long-term sponsor, who in 2015 provided substantial support for the
internationally significant Joan Mitchell exhibition. Further indi-
spensable partners and sponsors of this show were the Joan Mitchell
Foundation, New York, as well as Cheim & Read Gallery, New York.
In 2016 the support for Theaster Gates’ solo exhibition by Phileas - A Fund for Contemporary Art,
Vienna, deserves particular
mention. Additionally in 2016 there will be a collaboration with the
Jüdisches Museum Hohenems for the exhibition by Susan Philipsz.
