At regular intervals, a selected exhibition at Bucerius Kunst Forum is generously funded by the members of Bucerius Kunst Club. In consultation with the Board of Directors and the trustees, Bucerius Kunst Forum selects exhibitions for which the club acts as the main sponsor.

In addition, the club funds the position of curatorial assistant Dr. Daria Dittmeyer-Hössl. In return, Dr. Dittmeyer-Hössl offers a free talk for the members on the current exhibition theme and the works on view at the start of each exhibition. She is also available to answer any questions during the subsequent visit to the exhibition.

The popular programme for children, young people and their families is also funded by the club. On selected Saturdays, guided tours for families take place at Bucerius Kunst Forum, enabling the children to engage with the exhibition themes in an age-appropriate manner. Age-appropriate studio courses with visits to the exhibition inspire independent creative thinking and work and are led by extremely competent and passionate museum educators.

The club also supports the lecture programmes on the various exhibitions, where experts, curators and prominent persons from other cultural organisations provide interesting insights into topics that are relevant to the exhibition.
