After five successful years, Bart van der Heide's current term as 
director of Kunstverein München will come to an end in December. As 
such, the board of the Kunstverein is looking for a new director to lead 
the art institution beginning January 2015.

Kunstverein München is nationally and internationally regarded as an 
important institution for the presentation of innovative contemporary 
art practice, critical curatorial concepts and discourse. In the recent 
past the Kunstverein's program has been led by previous directors 
including Zdenek Felix, Helmut Draxler, Dirk Snauwaert, Maria Lind, and 
Stefan Kalmár, who have challenged curatorial and contemporary art 
conventions through exhibition-making and programming. Originally 
founded in 1823, Kunstverein München is one of Germany's oldest art 
associations. It is supported by Munich's local arts council and its 
role as a key contemporary art institution in the city ranks it 
alongside major institutions such as the Pinakothek der Moderne, Haus 
der Kunst, and Lenbachhaus.

A suitable candidate for this position should be able to effectively 
communicate her or his program and represent Kunstverein München on a 
local, national and international level. Applicants are required to hold 
relevant academic education, an independent curatorial approach and 
first-hand experience in all fields of exhibition making including team 
leadership, communication, education, managing finances, fundraising, 
marketing, and public relations.

Applications should include a detailed CV and short outline of a 
proposed program. Please send digitally by 20 June 2014 to the following 
email address: directorspost at kunstverein-muenchen.de.

Your application will be treated confidentially. More information about 
Kunstverein München can be found on our website, www.kunstverein-muenchen.de

For any questions please contact Dr. Florian Seidl, the chairman of 
Kunstverein München's board by email at florian.seidl at keller-kalmbach.com.

Interviews will take place on 26 July 2014.
