In the location's words:

Dortmunder Kunstverein e.V. was founded at the end of 1984 as a civic initiative as a non-profit association for the promotion and mediation of contemporary art in Dortmund. Since 2014, it has been located in the immediate vicinity of the Dortmunder U - Center for Art and Creativity and thus contributes to strengthening this cultural center for contemporary art in Dortmund.
With up to four curated solo and group exhibitions of current national and international positions each year, the Kunstverein has made a name for itself as a place of exchange and social understanding. Supplemented by a diverse program of public discussion formats with artists and experts, performances, guided tours, films, lectures and publications, the Kunstverein offers an open platform for discussions on relevant ways of thinking and issues in contemporary visual art.
In the 1980s and 1990s, the Kunstverein presented solo exhibitions by renowned artists such as Hanne Darboven, Joseph Beuys, Roman Signer, Richard Serra and Dortmund-born Martin Kippenberger at its various locations. Today, the program increasingly focuses on young, not yet established positions in contemporary art.

After 4 nominations in a row, the Dortmunder Kunstverein was awarded the ADKV-ART COLOGNE Prize for Art Associations in 2023. Every year since 2006, the prize has been awarded to one of the more than 300 art associations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland for its program of the last three years and honors particularly innovative programming and mediation work.
