Kunst-Stoffe tries to support creative strategies for reuse and reutilisation. Left-over or second-hand materials can be donated to our collection points. Once we categorize them as a sustainable recource, artists, DIYers and non-profit or charitable organisations can purchase them at low-cost

Materials from Kunst-Stoffe get turned into artwork, designer pieces, stage settings and decorations. Kindergardens, schools, theaters and numerous educational artists belong to our circle of frequent users.

Since the establishment of our organisation in the spring of 2006, tons of materials that were already declared trash, could be saved and creatively reused.
With our work we support three socially important fields of action:


  • Waste-Prevention

Kunst-Stoffe establishes a new sector in the fields of Reusability. Unused materials can be donatet or picked up by a staff member before they loose they value by getting thrown away and pollute the city. By that we contribute to the preservation of recources and the prevention of unnecessary waste.

  • Cultural Development 

In Times of declining public financial resources for the area of culture, the need for alternative resources rises. Kunst-Stoffe offers cultural creators a wide range and a vast amount of materials, whose stock is constantly changing. For a professional processing, Kunst-Stoffe offers the temporary use of our workshops (for wood, metal and textiles), as well as further workspace.

  • Support of Creativity

Kunst-Stoffe serves as a networt and a center of exellence. Based on our experience and in cooperation with additional partners we offer thematic events and workshops for different target audiences.
