WE LOVE ARTISTS

We present a pool of professional artists of diverse cultural and conceptual spaces, artistic disciplines, and branches. We create an international network of creativity, knowledge, expertise, and artistic diversity, physically located in the Ministry of Artists in Vienna, virtually unlimited.

Aspiring, established, world-famous – to us, these are just different steps of a shared path. We learn from each other in solidarity, grow together as humans, artists, audiences, and society.

As artists, we’re flooded by “great new platforms for exposure” – and nearly all of them are exploitative. The Ministry is made by artists for artists. If you’re interested in joining us, it is not obligatory to be a member of the association (although we appreciate it). Our homepage and exhibition/concert programs are curated professionally to offer and maintain a high-quality standard. Feel free to contact us with any questions you have!
