November 2015

In November 2015, after long preparations, the Werner Herzog Foundation had been established in Munich. Thus, because of the non-profit foundation model, it is ensured that the whole body of work of Werner Herzog remains beyond the reach of any form of private self-interest and make it permanently accessible to the general public worldwide.

The foundation shall exclusively and directly pursue purposes aimed at advancing the public benefit within the meaning of the “Tax-privileged purposes” section of the German Tax Code. The Foundation shall operate for the public good in the interest of science, education, art and culture.
