Support Conservation

The internationally renowned collection of the Hamburger Kunsthalle, comprising 123,000 valuable works, functions as a storehouse of knowledge. It is our mission to preserve and maintain it to the best possible extent for the benefit of future generations.

To this end, the restoration of individual works and the conservational care for the collection play a vital role. In the restoration workshops, the conservators focus on retarding the works’ deterioration processes and taking preventive measures to protect the objects. Art-technological research in collaboration with international specialists and academics of various disciplines is another integral part of their work.

Restoration is virtually at the core of the museum. It is, in all its facets, time consuming and cost intensive. We rely on your support to ensure that the Kunsthalle’s permanent collection is conserved and restored at a sophisticated scientific level and thus preserved for the long term. We will gladly inform you of specific ongoing projects, enabling you to join us in our effort to safeguard this unique and irreplaceable treasure of art history for generations to come.
