15 countries, 30 years, over 500 projects

The New Patrons in Germany are part of an international network. Since 1992, citizens have completed over 500 projects in 15 countries following the New Patrons protocol: works of art and architecture, films, music, literature, Internet projects, and theater productions. More than 300 of these were produced in France, where the New Patrons have become a permanent fixture in the artistic and wider community, particularly in the country’s economically underdeveloped regions. Thousands of partners – independent mediators, funding bodies, and initiatives that share a common goal – have helped make this work possible. The New Patrons do not represent an institution but a new technique of artistic production. Read more
