Throughout the year, we offer our members a wide range of art trips – from day and weekend excursions to comprehensive study tours. Our excursions always promise to be interesting and diversified, including visits to important art venues and featuring visits to local artists’ studios and private collections.
Avignon, Arles und Marseille – Art trip to the South of France October 2022
Enchanté! The South of France welcomed the Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst with open arms in the fall of 2022. On two five-day trips, our members toured the cities of Avignon, Barjac, Arles, Aix-en-Provence, Nîmes, and Marseille, and were able to experience the region’s diverse art and cultural scene. From the renowned Collection Lambert, the Carré d’ Art in Nimes, the Museum LUMA and an exhibition in the historic Hotel Vernon in Arles, to the important landmarks of Marseille, the oldest city of France – there was a lot to see! In between guided tours through the cities, exciting special exhibitions and studio visits, we enjoyed the Mediterranean sun, dined, drank and laughed together.

Under the direction of Cecilia Alemani, the 2022 Biennale reflected on the massive upheavals of the last two years, embarked on a search for future possibilities of living together, and questioned the relationship between society, technology, the body, and nature. Dr. Yilmaz Dziewior, a familiar face from the Museum Ludwig, was appointed to curate the German pavilion, and invited Maria Eichhorn to contribute.
The members of the Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst were, of course, present in present in Venice and were able to get to know the various international contributions and artistic positions during two art trips lasting several days in May and September of 2022. In addition to the Biennale visit to the Giardini and the Arsenale, the program also included guided tours of current exhibition highlights and collections as well as an architectural tour of Venice’s historic city centre.
