A wide range of support options
There is a long tradition of civic commitment to Kunsthalle Mannheim. The Kunsthalle is also dependent on sustained support for future exhibitions with international loans, the expansion of the collection, and a lively cultural education programme.

Engagement der Hector-Stiftungen
With their generous donation of €50 million, Hans-Werner Hector and his wife Josephine made it possible to construct the new museum building, which opened on Friedrichsplatz in 2018. The building bears their name in recognition of their patronage.The H.W & J. Hector Foundation also uses its funds to support exhibitions and artist projects. Every three years, together with the Kunsthalle Mannheim, it awards the Hector Prize for Contemporary Art in Germany. The 2019 award went to Hiwa K.
The Hector Foundation II Kunst gGmbH spearheaded and financed the site-specific light installation “Split Decision” by James Turrell. The work of the American light-art pioneer in the former Athena corridor transforms the passageway between the art nouveau building and the new building into an unforgettable perceptual experience. We are profoundly grateful to the Hectors and their foundations for supporting our institution for many years.
