Welcome to the Winckelmann-Gesellschaft and the Winckelmann Museum

The Winckelmann-Gesellschaft is an international association with ca. 600 members from more than 20 countries. Here scholars, laypersons and Winckelmann-admirers from all over the world are united. It is the intention of this association to support international research about the life, work, and reception of Johann Joachim Winckelmann, and to bring together the fields of classical archaeology, art history, and German philology as a key to understanding the intellectual history during the 18th century. The Winckelmann-Gesellschaft regularly organizes international conventions, colloquia, and field-trips. Since 2000 it has served as the governing body of the Winckelmann-Museum.
