AWF & AWFG
Ann Wolff Foundation, Berlin was established as a non-profit-foundation in Berlin, Germany, in 2008.
Ann Wolff and her husband Dirk Bimberg established recently, in 2017, the non-profit organization, Ann Wolff Foundation, Gotland in Visby, Sweden.
Donations of works by Ann Wolff form the basis of both foundations. The foundations take care of and maintain Ann Wolffs artwork, to show and publish it and widen the discussion concerning art and culture with a focus on glass.
A property in the middle of Visby is donated to AWFG works as a studio for the artist and a meeting point for AWFG and Ann’s friends.
An aspect of AWF is to give contemporary artists a residential scholarship with the opportunity to experiment with the material of glass and incorporate it into their work.
