Kunsthaus Bregenz
Museum / Bregenz, Austria

Kunsthaus Bregenz is an internationally active institute for the presentation of outstanding contemporary art. Thanks to its ambitious exhibition program and its unique architecture, the Kunsthaus is also internationally renowned among aficionados of art and architecture. It was designed by the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor on behalf of the Austrian Federal State of Vorarlberg and was constructed between 1990 and 1997. Peter Zumthor won the Mies van der Rohe Award for European Architecture in 1998 for the Kunsthaus. In 2009, he was honored with the Pritzker Prize, the most prestigious award for architects.

Artists are invited to respond to the building’s architecture or to even enter into a symbiosis with it. For this reason, a large part of the work on display has been created on site and especially for the institution. Kunsthaus Bregenz’s exhibitions and projects enable artists’ ideas to become reality. The boundaries of both what is feasible and imaginable repeatedly shift with each exhibition. From the artists’ initial visions – rough, hand drawn sketches or small-scale models – precisely executed projects evolve. Such projects are only possible thanks to mutually trusting collaborations between the technical team, the artist, and curator, as well as the entire staff at the Kunsthaus. This also involves the artists working closely with partners from local industries and trades. The exceptionally high quality and flexibility of Vorarlberg businesses is repeatedly highlighted by invited artists.

Edelbert Köb was the founding director of Kunsthaus Bregenz, leading it until 2000, followed by Eckhard Schneider from 2000 to 2008. Yilmaz Dziewior became responsible for the program from October 1, 2009 to January 31, 2015. His successor is Austrian born Thomas D. Trummer, who has headed Kunsthaus Bregenz since May 1, 2015.

Since its opening in July 1997, Kunsthaus Bregenz has offered well over a hundred artists from all over the world space for new and, in some cases, unique works, enabling KUB to achieve an internationally renowned position among institutes of contemporary art.

  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis
    Publication
    Witty Books
    International
    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
  • Rodrigo Morales: 91 East

    GCAC / Grand Central Art Center
    Santa Ana, USA
    In the 1980s, a mere 234 warehouses dotted the landscape of the Inland Empire. Today, over 4,000 logistic centers have been implanted across the region in a rapid movement to bring commerce to the region. Once identified by its untouched land, the area has become enveloped by the sprawling network of warehouses that define the region’s skyline. As this part of Southern California quickly becomes the backbone of America’s road-based supply chain, it simultaneously introduces many repercussions to the daily lives of communities that call the Inland Empire home.
