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 KÃ¼nstlerhaus 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 KÃ¼nstlerhaus Lukas, operated by the "KÃ¼nstlerhaus Ahrenshoop e.V.". It is supported by the "Ministerium fÃ¼r 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).
