The entry to MINDESTABSTAND-OPEN-AIR is free. Seats can be reserved prior to the event via mail (openwhatever@kunstverein-wiesbaden.de), however, a spontaneous visit under the motto “first come first serve” is also possible. The current exhibitions can be visited for free on festival days. Prerequisite for the attendance of an event of MINDESTABSTAND-OPEN-AIR are one of the three: vaccinated, recovered or tested.

The opening of Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden as well as the realization of MINDESTABSTAND-OPEN-AIR follow an extensive hygiene plan, which has been developed according to governmental guidelines. Our hygiene concept is adapted and continuously updated following the official regulations and recommendations in force at the time of the festival and stipulated by the Robert Koch Institute, the federal as well as state government, the museum association and the authorities of the city of Wiesbaden. Changes in measures and our program can only be communicated on short notice due to the dynamic development of the pandemic.
