Peter Paul Rubens-Foundation, the University of Siegen and the City of Siegen play important roles in the museum's structure.

The Peter Paul Rubens-Foundation

The Peter-Paul-Rubens Foundation was founded in June 1997. Its aim is to promote and advance art, cultural life, science, and research. It sees its main task as helping to maintain operations at the Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen. In addition, the Peter-Paul-Rubens Foundation administers the Lambrecht-Schadeberg Collection / Laureates of the City of Siegen’s Rubens Prize, which it permanently makes available as lender to the Museum.

University of Siegen

A cooperation contract between the museum and the University of Siegen was concluded in 1999, establishing common ground for mutual efforts in the fields of research, education, and museum practice.

The partnership builds on close ties to the art history/art pedagogic and media science faculties as well as to several interdisciplinary research groups and university institutions such as the special research group Media Upheavals or the post graduate program on intermediality. Especially for students of art history, art pedagogic, and media aesthetics getting to know the museum is a central, practically oriented component of their college education.
