NAK Neuer Aachener Kunstverein is one of the youngest institutions of it’s kind in Germany; a private non-profit association for contemporary art in the tradition of the German Kunstverein model. NAK was founded in 1986 as a late echo of the 1964 Fluxus festival, with Joseph Beuys and Wolf Vostell as center protagonists at the local university in Aachen. The spirit of this moment has since been source of commitment to contemporary art.
