In 2010, we made our diverse archive of over 8,400 volumes open to the public. Alongside our exhibitions and their attendant events, the library offers another means of informing oneself about what is happening in the context of contemporary visual art. Our collection focuses on art journals and exhibition catalogues of museums, other art associations in Germany and smaller galleries, a number of which have been generously gifted to the Kunstverein Freiburg.
