Society of Patrons of Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur, Cologne e.V.

The Society of Patrons supports and actively accompanies the work performed by Die Photographische Sammlung. As a member, you play a part through your financial and non-material involvement in the preservation of important photographic works, and you advocate photography as a multifaceted artistic medium. Besides exhibitions, this includes tours of the collection, lectures, symposia, and workshops. You support the acquisition of works on permanent loan so that they become part of our collection. By doing so, the society of patrons enriches and consolidates Die Photographische Sammlung’s collection concept.
