Three years ago during the 5th edition of Affordable Art Fair Hamburg, we launched the Collectors' Club. The club is designed to inspire budding and experienced collectors who want to know more about contemporary art by organising exclusive tours and unique experiences. Over the past 3 years, together with members of the Collectors' Club, we have visited the Sprengel Museum, Nolde Museum, Herbert Gerisch Stiftung and the Nordart.
Free membership is open to those who purchase work at this year's fair, along with art lovers who have bought art at our previous editions. Register at the fair to join one of our free events and see artists at work in their studios, participate in exclusive tours workshops and events held in unusual and interesting locations.
Thursday 14 - Sunday 17 November, available during fair hours
Registration at Collectors' Club counter next to the entrance.
Every day we will run free tours of the fair, which are a great introduction to the Affordable Art Fair and suitable for experienced collectors and new art lovers alike. You don't need to register for a place, just turn up at the information desk at your preferred time (3 pm or 5 pm).
Thursday 14 - Sunday 17 November, 3pm and 5pm
The tours are free and don't need require any registration. Meeting point at infocounter.

'Collecting art - The great passion'
Why is art triggering us? Why do we want to own art? How can we recognise quality? How do we start collecting art? When can we call ourselves a collector? Accumulation or collection?
Collecting art is a passion as old as time, and yet the subject is inexhaustible. To help answer these questions and more, we have invited art expert Thole Rotermund (Thole Rotermund Kunsthandel) to talk together with Dr. Anna Schwan (Schwan Communications) about the art of collecting.
Saturday 16 November, 3pm
The Collectors Talk will take place at the bar.
We are celebrating the 8th anniversary of the Emerging Artists exhibition. The exhibition will be showcasing the work of three outstanding promising artists from the University of Fine Arts Hamburg, Asana Fujikawa, Emilia Kubacki und Malte Stienen. Set in a space within the fair, we invite you to explore and experience the eclectic nature of contemporary art through the diverse materials and techniques employed by these three emerging artists. This year's exhibition is titled 'Anthropocene' - an attempt to give a name to today's human age. In their works, the artists take up the topic in many ways and encourage a deeper discussion of the coexistence on earth.
A limited edition catalogue will be also published by the Seltmann+Söhne publishing house with contributions from art historians. The edition of 200 copies will be available for interested collectors at the Emerging Artists exhibition booth, as well as at the information counter.
The exhibition is curated by Isabel Deimel and sponsored by Heiko Harms & Quirin Privatbank.
The exhibition is located next to Stand H9.
If you are visiting the fair with children aged between 2 – 10 years, why not bring them to our free of charge Kids Space where they can get arty! Hosted by our expert art educators, your mini-Picasso's can enjoy a number of creative activities designed to teach children how to be artistic in a playful way.
Saturday 16 November, 11am - 8pm
Sunday 17 November, 11am - 6pm
The kids space is free of charge, but limited and requires on-site registration.
Born and raised in Miami, half Nicaraguan, half German and living in Hamburg, it’s no wonder that Brigette Hoffmann’s artwork is a whirlwind of colour and chaos with all of those wonderful cultural influences.
Joining Affordable Art Fair Hamburg as our Workshop Artist in residence, we just can’t wait to sit alongside Brigette in hope of creating some multi-media works as fun and full of life as her own artwork.
Brigette tells us about her practice and excitement about the fair in our latest blog: Every day at 2 pm and 4 pm, the artist invites you to look over her shoulder while working.
Want to know more about Brigette Hoffmann? Check out her interview here.
Thursday 14 November - Sunday 17 November, 2pm and 4pm
The Open Studio is free and no registration is needed.
Our Sponsor Partner for a whopping eighth year running is Millerntor Gallery, who supports the work and water projects of Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V. - a non-profit organisation committed to ensuring that all people worldwide have access to clean drinking water and sanitation.
Every year, the Millerntor Stadium turns into an open platform for dialogue and exchange on a local, international and intercultural level. Artworks of various genres as well as a diverse musical, cultural and educational program reflect the different ways in which everyone can positively change the world.
Much of the proceeds of the Millerntor Gallery goes directly into these diverse projects and this initiative shows their commitment to how the world can be positively shaped.
The exhibition is located next to Stand A7.
