Sponsorship at the MKM –
The intelligent connection between culture and business
We are convinced from experience that culture and business can benefit from each other. The projects of the MKM and the Stiftung für Kunst und Kultur e.V. have always been privately financed. We are very well connected and have been working together with our sponsors for many years. The well-coordinated team around director Walter Smerling offers individual and flexible utilisation options to companies that engage in our projects. We communicate, open doors, design and break new ground.
We thank our long-standing sponsors and supporters for their generous commitment:
Evonik Industries AG
Fine Art Business Partner / Art Insurance Broker of the Ecclesia Group
Hasenkamp International Transports GmbH
and the other unnamed sponsors
Christoph M. Gais. Image worlds from 1990 to today
With about 80 works from the years since 1990, the survey of works presents a painter whose paintings reveal unique power and authenticity. The paintings of Christoph M. Gais are timeless and testify to a high painterly culture. The artist himself speaks of the “ransacked surfaces” of his paintings and understands them as curtains in front of walls, as fantasy triggers and cult objects. He has lived in the countryside in Italy since the early 1990s. In his work, the influences of his surroundings mix with a comprehensive understanding of culture, which also shows itself in a fascination for African lifeworlds. Gais stands up for a universal understanding of culture that offers valid signposts and sources of inspiration, especially in our disoriented times.
