Kunsthalle Wien in Wien

Show Map

The Kunsthalle Wien is an institution in Vienna for temporary exhibitions of contemporary international art. It opened in 1992, and was originally located on Karlsplatz, in a container-shaped building designed as a temporary site by the Austrian architect Adolf Krischanitz. In 2001, it moved into a new building in the Museumsquartier, along with other museums from Vienna.

The old building on Karlsplatz was replaced by a smaller glass construction, which now serves as a "project space" exhibiting emerging artists and special group exhibitions for the Kunsthalle. One of the Kunsthalle's two cafes is also located on the old site.

In 2002, the Italian art magazine ARTE named the Kunsthalle Wien as one of the six best contemporary art centres in Europe.

In 2005, the Kunsthalle exhibited Feridun Zaimoğlu's work "Kanak Attack. The Turk's third siege?" (a "flag installation").
