In 2016 we launched the Collectors' Club by MINI. 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 5 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 12 - Sunday 15 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 12 - Sunday 15 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. Dr. Anna Schwan (Schwan Communications) will moderate the talk and help answer these questions and more.
Saturday 14 November, 3pm
The Collectors Talk will take place at the bar.
This year we will be celebrating our 9th anniversary of the Emerging Artists exhibition. The exhibition will showcase the work of outstanding, promising artists from Hamburg.
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 14 November, 11am - 8pm
Sunday 15 November, 11am - 6pm
The kids space is free of charge, but limited and requires on-site registration.
This year we will once again be running printmaking workshops. More information coming soon.
Thursday 12 November - Sunday 15 November, 2pm and 4pm
Our Sponsor Partner for a whopping ninth 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.
