Kulturstiftung des Bundes -
Support and further development in TYPO3

The Initial Situation

The "Kulturstiftung des Bundes" / "Federal Cultural Foundation" is one of the largest publicly funded cultural foundations in Europe. The foundation supports art and culture - without thematic restrictions and in all areas. In doing so, it places particular emphasis on promoting innovative programs and projects in an international context, on cross-border cooperation and on lively cultural exchange. To this end, the foundation initiates and supports appropriate art and culture projects upon application.

Our Task

On their website ( the "Kulturstiftung des Bundes" presents these projects. The website was redesigned at the beginning of 2018 by the agency Boros GmbH from Wuppertal: Photos and graphics were given more space, hashtags provide orientation regarding relevant topics and funding priorities, and a new search and filter function facilitates research.

For the time after the launch, the foundation was looking for an agency - with relevant experience in TYPO3 as well as in the field of culture - for the ongoing support and further development of its website. The concept of cosmoblonde was convincing.
