 kukutana is a non-profit entity and registered as part of SABAA.education.

kukutana offers African artists the opportunity to present and sell their works to the interested public.
The online-gallery aims to create opportunities for buyers and artists: By bringing together creators and connoisseurs; by increasing the visibility of contemporary African art; by enabling artists to earn a living.
 
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Wünsch founded and manages kukutana. In 2017, he started the non-profit company SABAA.education. SABAA presents a biennial art award (#ensemble 1, 2021) for sub-Saharan African artists.
