Kunstverein Braunschweig
Museum

The Kunstverein Braunschweig, founded in 1832, is now one of the most renowned institutions of its type in Germany, annually presenting eight solo or group shows featuring important international present-day artists.

Its primary goal is the advancement of young artists within the discourse of contemporary art. The Kunstverein Braunschweig comprehends itself as a lively site of exchanges and dialogues. One of our main concerns is transmitting the potentials involved in contemporary art production, and we go about this aim by way publishing exhibition catalogues, in lecture series, gallery talks and guided tours.

Parallel to the programme in the Haus Salve Hospes itself, four exhibitions have been shown annually in the adjacent “Remise” (Coach House) since 1996. As a field for experimentation it serves as a platform four young artistic positions and curatorial projects.

The Kunstverein has resided since 1946 on Lessingplatz in the Villa Salve Hospes, which was built from 1805 to 1808 by the architect Peter Joseph Krahe in the classicistic style as a private merchant’s house. With its clear and simple spatial concept it is linked to the grand tradition of Venetian villas dating from the Renaissance and its immediate model is Andrea Palladio’s Villa Rotonda in Vicenza.

  • Gregory Crewdson: Retrospective
    May 29 – Sep 8, 2024
    Albertina
    Wien, Austria
    Gregory Crewdson (*1962, Brooklyn) is one of the world’s most renowned photographers. Since the mid-1980s, Crewdson has been using the backdrop of small American towns and film sets to create, like a director, technically brilliant and colourfully seductive photographs that focus on human isolation and the abysses of society. The enigmatic scenes self-reflexively raise questions about the boundary between fact and fiction but can also be related to socio-political developments. (more…)
