Welcome to Kunsthalle Wien!
Kunsthalle Wien is a young institution, both with regards to how long it has existed, as well as to the structure of its program. We see ourselves as a "hot zone" of communicative transfer between art and the public. Through our programs and activities, we attempt to create a connection between the classics of modern art and artistic visions of the future.
At two locations – the Museumsquartier and Karlsplatz square – we offer space for boundless possibilities. For artists looking to present their ideas and works, for the public wanting to come to terms with modern art.
At our two exhibition sites, we have consciously avoided architecture with an "event" character, instead emphasizing functional and flexible exhibition spaces. This is appropriate to the aesthetic and media framework of young contemporary art. I especially pleased that, with the glass pavilion in the project space on the Karlsplatz, we have succeeded in realizing a new exhibition form. Art is no longer hidden behind walls, but rather presented as if it were actually in a display window. Perhaps one more step towards interlacing art with life.
Through our programs, we wish to be both a place of attraction, but also one of irritation; and whichever the case, at least a place of art and a place for people. My team and I thank you for your interest and look forward to your visit.
