History of the club

Since 2016

hase29 - Society for Contemporary Art Osnabrück eV, is a young, ambitious art association in Hasestraße 29/30 in the city center of Osnabrück.

Founded in early 2016 in a former shop by around 40 active artists and those interested in art, the association regularly presents exhibitions and projects on contemporary art in its hase29 exhibition space and in the public urban space.

The aim is to make contemporary art more accessible to a broader public and to tap the potential of artistic research for dealing with the present with current exhibition topics.

Participation in the social discourse as the main idea

The audience is at the center of both art projects and our inclusive and integrative education programs for children, young people and adults. Target group-oriented communication formats introduce the works and thus enable participation in discussions and creative processes. People with different talents and abilities can experience contemporary artistic techniques in their own creative work.

hase29 offers space for young talents and outstanding artistic personalities who are addressed both by invitation and through public tenders. Artists appreciate hase29 as an exhibition location with high artistic standards; The public sees the art space as a meeting place for people who are looking for ideas for dealing with artistic topics and innovative social issues.

hase29 - Society for Contemporary Art closes a gap in Osnabrück's cultural life. After all, the association has made a name for itself as a creative player both in the city district and within the changing cultural landscape of Osnabrück after a short time. The association lives from the civil commitment of many and honorary work of individual people. With its sponsors and partners from business and politics, the association develops civic engagement. The association is open to everyone who advocates diversity and artistic-creative exchange.
