We would like to thank the NRW-Forum’s long-term partners for their crucial contribution, which enables us to realise exhibitions and projects and to offer an ambitious programme. Through their commitment they contribute to the advancement of contemporary culture as well as to the further development of the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.


The Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf is a permanent partner of the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf since 2017. As the largest financial service-provider in Düsseldorf and the region, it is the main bank for private households, medium-sized companies and institutions. In addition to its main task in the credit services sector, its business strategy focuses on social engagement. This connects them to the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, which picks up on current social issues, presents them in the highest artistic quality and makes them accessible to the whole family and all social classes. Thus two strong partners have found each other, who together want to expand and strengthen the quality of life in the region and cultural diversity.

"We are pleased to supplement our extensive and long-standing engagement in the field of art and culture with the support of the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, whose innovative and future-oriented formats we appreciate and want to continue to enable," said Karin-Brigitte Göbel, Chairman of the Board of the Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf.

The Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf is part of the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe and operates the universal banking business. It runs 96 branches and self-service locations and is the market leader in its business area with around 1,900 employees. As a public-law institution, the Stadt Sparkasse Düsseldorf works for the common good and supports in particular the citizens of the city and the Düsseldorf region in the areas of customs, education, social affairs, sports, arts and culture with around 3.5 million euros annually.

The Beisheim Foundation is engaged in the dialogue between generations and in shaping social change. The foundation develops its own programs and promotes projects that aim to actively participate in society. The focus of the foundation's nationwide work is on education, health, sports and culture. In the spirit of the founder Otto Beisheim, the foundation acts entrepreneurially and in partnership.

In the field of culture, on one hand support for established cultural players and on the other hand their ability to develop further represents a core area. "The support of creative and innovative concepts in the work of museums is very important to us," says Annette Heuser, Managing Director of the Beisheim Foundation, explaining the motivation behind the partnership with the NRW-Forum. "In our view, the realisation of contemporary educational programmes for younger and older visitor groups is of great importance so that cultural institutions can stay fit for the future". The Beisheim Foundation supports the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf since 2017.

The law firm Hoffmann Liebs entered into a long-term partnership with the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf in 2016. In addition to a number of jointly implemented projects, such as the guided tour "Paragraphs, Law and Art: The Jura Tour", the firm also uses the premises of the NRW Forum Düsseldorf for exclusive event dates and client seminars within.

“The NRW-Forum Düsseldorf is an esteemed cultural institution and well-known throughout Germany that, in recent years, has consistently realised extraordinarily successful and highly regarded photography exhibitions”, says Dr Norbert Bröcker, a lawyer and Partner at Hoffman Liebs in Düsseldorf. “At Hoffmann Liebs we are looking forward to realising numerous joint projects with the NRW-Forum in the coming years“, says Partner Lothar Köhl about the long-term commitment of the Düsseldorf-based law firm Hoffmann Liebs.

Hoffmann Liebs Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten mbBoperates with more than 40 lawyers at its Düsseldorf location. The law office provides advice to medium-sized enterprises and family business owners as well as to international groups and also to the public sector.

Why become a partner?

Distinct, creative and flexible - the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, as one of the most important and innovative photographic authorities in Germany, is an exciting partner for a cooperation.

The NRW-Forum is a vibrant venue where numerous events, festivals and trade fairs take place in addition to exhibitions. Under the direction of Alain Bieber, the number of visitors has grown steadily. Just under 100,000 visitors come to see this institution every year. With its topical, contemporary and innovative themes and a focus on digitisation, it elicits a huge response, especially from the creative scene, too. It is uniquely positioned in Düsseldorf’s cultural scene with respect to the subjects of photography, pop culture and digital culture.

As a partner, the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf provides diverse opportunities and potential for large, medium-sized and also small enterprises. In dialogue, we can develop distinct approaches within the scope of a partnership with the institution and/or one related to an exhibition that will have a positive impact on a company’s specific goals in terms of CSR, marketing, sales and which will also be of relevance to HR objectives.
