We are living in such delicate times that simply going about on the street could bring tears to our eyes. Perhaps this came right after a video call with loved ones on the other side of the globe you had not seen for two years. (more…)
Kunsthalle Wien opened its doors at Karlsplatz in 1992. The initially rather controversial yellow container structure not only shaped the Viennese cityscape, but also changed the local art and exhibition scene. In 2001, Kunsthalle Wien eventually moved into its new headquarters, designed by the architect duo Ortner & Ortner, at the Museumsquartier.
Kunsthalle Wien is a space which comprises the broad diversity of international contemporary art and its related contemporary discourses. To this effect, Kunsthalle Wien has been developing innovative exhibition and communication formats. As an open forum, it is not a collection, but rather both a space for established art and a negotiation site for current issues and future developments. It attaches great importance to the reflection of art and culture in addition to the presentation of art, and is equally concerned with its responsibility towards its visitors. Kunsthalle Wien is open and accessible to all.
