KAI 10 | ARTHENA FOUNDATION has been showing international contemporary art in a former warehouse in Düsseldorf’s Medienhafen district for over a decade. Founded in 2008 by Monika Schnetkamp, this non-profit institution operates without a collection of its own. To date it has presented over 240 artists in 37 thematic group exhibitions, documenting these activities in 35 publications and 24 films accompanied by numerous performances, guided tours, lectures and panel discussions. Despite focusing on international young art, established positions are also presented. In addition to its exhibition programme, KAI 10 | ARTHENA FOUNDATION funds the creation and presentation of works of art on its premises.
Supplementing other exhibition venues in the region, KAI 10 represents an innovative model of corporate arts support. It is open daily (except Mondays), admission free. Exhibition themes are explored in greater depth and examined from a broader perspective in accompanying events as well as publications featuring content and design as individual as the projects themselves. KAI 10 raised its international profile with a multi-part installation by Thomas Zipp at the 55th Art Biennale in Venice in 2013.
