Partners and sponsors
The Partners of the MMK
With the partnership model the MMK, its partners and the City of Frankfurt operate a lasting and innovative form of art sponsorship. In one point in particular the partnership model is extraordinary since it guarantees as a public private partnership the long-term certainty so crucial for planning tasks related to the Museum, such as expanding its internationally renowned Collection. In recent years, the MMK partnership model has gained international acclaim and stands for responsible museum and collection policy. The partners support the most agreeable and fundamental task of a museum. They ensure its independence and guarantee the high quality of additions to the Collection. Finally, this model is also associated with an outstanding and enduring cultural engagement that extends far beyond the selective promotion of events and temporary exhibitions. The partnership relationship between the Museum and the company is characterized by lasting, future-oriented action.
The partnership model is aimed at companies that consider support for the arts and culture as a social responsibility. Over the space of three years each of these companies commits a sum of EUR 40,000 a year to the Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt/Main for its use. The City of Frankfurt also makes available the same amount to the MMK in the framework of a matching fund. The three year operation of the model with an extension option provides an ideal foundation for the MMK and its partners. It gives the MMK the confidence needed for planning such important tasks as expanding the Collection, and enables companies to be associated with one of the most internationally acclaimed contemporary art museums over a longer period of time. Moreover, those works of art acquired for the Collection during a company’s membership period remain associated with that company’s name beyond this membership. Consequently, those companies that were once partners secure for themselves a long-lasting connection with the MMK Collection. Participation in the Fund automatically qualifies firms for membership in the friends of the MMK, not to mention being named at a highly visible spot in the Museum and on the MMK website. We will be happy to inform you about other special services for partners.
