The Curt Engelhorn Foundation for the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen
The mission of the Curt Engelhorn Foundation (CES) for the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen (rem) is to promote the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen as a public institution of arts and culture, scholarship, and research.
It is pursuing the goal of further expanding the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen to make them a nationally and internationally respected center of art and cultural history and comparative cultural studies. The close relationship between the rem operated as a municipal enterprise by the city of Mannheim and the non-profit Curt Engelhorn Foundation for the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen is unique in the German museum scene.
The museum’s directorate and the foundation’s board are identical and are always managed conjointly. This makes it possible to coordinate both institutions’ resources ideally.
