The NEUES KUNSTHAUS AHRENSHOOP puts five to six exhibitions every year, following the contemporary artwork in Ahrenshoop, a village rich of tradition. Exhibitions, video – and dance-performances, readings and concerts are conjoined with eachother and spot the specifics of the current art scene. In close cooperation with the Künstlerhaus Lukas, the NEUES KUNSTHAUS AHRENSHOOP is initiator of international thematic projects, enabling a collaboration of visual arts, literature, dance and music. In addition, there is a special salesroom for interested visitors, with a constant range of paintings, graphics, small sculptures, jewelry and catalogues, in conjunction with the previous program of the house.
The NEUES KUNSTHAUS AHRENSHOOP is, together with the Künstlerhaus Lukas, operated by the "Künstlerhaus Ahrenshoop e.V.". It is supported by the "Ministerium für Bildung, Wis-senschaft und Kultur des Landes Mecklenburg-Vorpommern" (ministry of education, science and culture of the country Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) and numerous private friends and sponsors, notably the members of the Freundeskreis Neue Kunst hat Freunde (New Art has Friends).
