The Internationale Gesellschaft der Bildenden Künste (IGBK) supports exchange between artists all over the world, broadening perspectives, creating new spaces of experience and establishing new connections.

This not only enriches artistic work, but also promotes artistic freedom, freedom of expression and critical discourse. Intercultural collaboration strengthens openness among people and contributes to variety and diversity. It also makes an important contribution to democracy and tolerance.

Through our projects, our services and our work as part of international and European networks, we make a very concrete commitment to these values. We help to improve the economic and social conditions for artistic work and mediate between national and international levels in this context. We aim to break down barriers to mobility, make mobility more climate-friendly and develop alternatives to conventional forms of artistic exchange.
