Kunsthalle Mannheim
Museum / Mannheim, Germany

The Kunsthalle Mannheim is a place of aesthetic experience. It enables a dialogue between viewer and artwork. With its collection of German and European, modern and contemporary art and its programmatic exhibitions, it is a meeting place for people of all generations seeking intelligent recreation. Inspiration and insights arise from our cultural mediation work. We distinguish ourselves in the network of art museums by giving innovative impulses in research and mediation. We are dedicated to furthering the development of contemporary art in a creative alliance with artists. Our mission is to arouse appreciation for the art of our times.

When the museum was founded in 1909, the collection of the Kunsthalle Mannheim with its key works from Edouard Manet to Francis Bacon and its unique emphasis on sculpture was one of the most respected civic collections in Germany. Shortly after its founding, the Kunsthalle coined the expression “art for all” denoting its innovative educational approach. With its seminal exhibitions – usually with an international perspective – and its encompassing educational programme, the Kunsthalle Mannheim remains a strong cultural player in Mannheim and beyond. Today, the museum takes into focus contemporary expressions in sculpture.

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)

    Panevėžys, Lithuania
    On this day… Stasys arrives back at his home village, Lepšiai… It all happens in May 2024… That’s when the Stasys Museum opens up to the public, a museum titled after him. This was never predicted – the future from there, a little village, in the house within a disorderly wooden structure, run down with dripping roofs, filled with bellowing, roaring farm animals… No fairy tales could be heard there… But just one hour’s walk away from Lepšiai, the white rectangular building stands proudly in the city centre (more…)
