The Kunsthalle Wien champions the new, the experimental, risk-taking. At its two locations – at the MuseumsQuartier and Karlsplatz – visitors find not only exciting works of contemporary art but opportunities to engage actively with current and socio-political themes. The Kunsthalle Wien sees itself as a place of experimentation, perpetual motion, and change, developing innovative exhibition and communication formats to further its aims.

The Kunsthalle Wien is open and accessible to all. Its education program offers a variety of approaches to the exhibitions, allows artistic practice to be combined with theoretical reflections, and promotes in-depth discussion of current issues in everyday life. As an urban institution, the Kunsthalle Wien presents Austrian and international contemporary art. Equally, it offers space for established art and a site for current social issues and future developments to be negotiated. As an institution without its own collection that concentrates on themed group exhibitions and individual shows by international artists, the exhibition hall occupies a special position among Vienna’s cultural institutions.
