Membership

The association consists of active members, supporting members, honorary members, and founders.

Pursuant to Article 2, (1) of the statutes of the Kunstverein Baden, active members may be artists born in the political district of Baden or residents of the district of Baden at the time of membership admission and who have been accepted at least twice to participate in exhibitions of the Kunstverein Baden. If an individual is already a member of the Berufsvereinigung der bildende Künstler Österreichs (Professional Association of Austrian Visual Artists), a decision can be made by the Association’s board of directors to admit the artist without prior approval of the association. The decision requires a two-thirds majority. Moreover, all other creative artists residing in the Viertel unter dem Wienerwald (Industrial Quarter) including Vienna and working within the cultural community of the region of Baden may become members of the association subject to the other conditions.

Anyone who is committed to the arts can become a supporting member.

Any member of the association who has promoted the image and reputation of the association through extraordinary achievements or who has rendered outstanding services to the arts, applied arts, or promotion of the arts in the Baden cultural field may become an honorary member by a majority decision of the general assembly. In special exceptional cases, a person who is not a member of the association may also be appointed as an honorary member if he or she has shown particular merit in promoting the arts or has provided special support.

Founders are individuals who provide special financial support to the association by contributing a substantial non-recurring amount to be decided by the general assembly.
