Kunsthalle Wien

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. Its educational program offers a variety of approaches, encourages a combination of artistic practice and its theoretical reflection, and promotes an in-depth discussion of current issues of everyday life.

Art education plays an important role in paving ways towards an understanding of contemporary art and emphasizing the relevance of art in our society. Kunsthalle Wien offers a diverse range of programs to acquaint various target groups with the subjects and queries of contemporary art and stimulate audiences to explore the potential of fine arts.

In cooperation with many cultural institutions, schools, teachers, artists, and curators, the Kunsthalle Wien art education team has been developing a variety of projects and activities –in reference to our current exhibitions or independent of them.
