Deichtorhallen Hamburg - Europe’s largest exhibition center for contemporary art and photography. All the exhibitions that viewers see and experience at Deichtorhallen invariably put their finger on the pulse of art and the world today. It is exactly this that year in year out makes Deichtorhallen such a unique magnet, attracting a whole host of visitors.

The patrons are members of a dynamic group of art enthusiasts who wish to accompany and strongly support the exhibition center’s future progress. After all, only thanks to private donations can the Deichtorhallen realize its international program and thus continue to familiarize the broader general public with contemporary art.

Why not play an active part shaping the Deichtorhallen’s future face and help move new exhibitions forwards? Proactively expand contemporary art to include areas that for many years were not or still are not to be found in museums. And benefit in the process from the countless advantages of being a member of »Patrons of Deichtorhallen«.

With your contribution you are supporting one of Europe’s most beautiful exhibition centers and also guaranteeing that the City of Hamburg enjoys a great art-infused future. 

 “Patrons of Deichtorhallen” is currently being established as an association in its own right. We will gladly send you the details on request.
