A Partner for Museums

In cooperation with museums and cultural institutions, the Institute for Cultural Exchange organizes world-wide exhibition tours for artists and about themes with international significance. Within the fields of fine art, photography and theme related exhibitions the Institute for Cultural Exchange offers a wide spectrum of diverse projects to national and international museums.

The Institute also organizes exhibition tours for already existing projects. These exhibitions, often created by international museums as one-time-only presentations, are brought up to the necessary touring standards by the Institute for Cultural Exchange and realized in a national and/or international context.
