The New Society for Visual Arts (Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst or nGbK) is a German art association which was established in 1969. It is headquartered in the Berlin district of Kreuzberg.

History[edit]

The New Society for Visual Arts was created in 1969 after the dissolution of the German Society of Fine Arts.[1] Unlike most German art associations, nGbK members themselves submit projects and then set up working groups. The working groups, which must consist of at least five persons, are approved and then dissolved after completion of the projects. This basic principle distinguishes this club from the other major German art associations, where usually the members have no direct influence on the exhibition planning.

Before moving to its current headquarters at Oranienstraße 25 in Kreuzberg, the organization's exhibition space was at Tempelhofer Ufer 22.[2][3]
