Furthering art and culture is a part of E.ON's corporate tradition and thus also of enterprise culture. Year-long collaborations with selected museums at the company’s principal locations form the core of E.ON's cultural commitment to art. To date E.ON has contributed at various German museums to realizing numerous large exhibitions. You will find an overview of the projects in recent years here. The museums we have already supported with several partnership projects include the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf, the Museum Folkwang in Essen and the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz in Berlin.

In addition, E.ON presents exhibitions at the company's headquarters at E.ON Platz in Düsseldorf. With these exhibitions E.ON is mainly concerned with presenting company staff as well as guests and other visitors, particularly art works by young artists. These shows are conceived as sales exhibitions. Thematically they create a connection with an E.ON sponsoring project. Thus, for instance, from November 2013 to February 2014, a photography exhibition was on show at E.ON making a connection with the photography exhibition Candida Höfer. Düsseldorf at the Museum Kunstpalast.

E.ON is associated with art, on the one hand, through exhibitions, but on the other, it also has its own art collection. Many of these works hang in company buildings, especially in Düsseldorf and Essen, but also at the Berlin branch and other company locations both domestically and abroad.
