Kunsthalle Zürich exhibits internationally relevant contemporary art and ideas that relate to it. Each exhibition is an experiment. Thus the Kunsthalle continually reassesses art, its public and itself.
All art emerges from a specific context. Exhibiting art entails generating a new site- and time-specific perspective. This is how Kunsthalle Zürich enters into dialogue with its public and the public with the Kunsthalle. Through this art can reveal its full potential, and Kunsthalle Zürich becomes a local meeting place with international significance.
The goals we set ourselves require sensitivity and care. We do all we can to treat our partners, colleagues and audiences with respect; we do not tolerate discrimination. A transparent, open and inclusive approach is fundamental to Kunsthalle Zürich.
Kunsthalle Zürich was founded in 1985 and today it is located in the Löwenbräukunst complex. The Kunsthalle organises six to ten exhibitions a year, it is non-commercial and has no collection. The Verein Kunsthalle Zürich (Kunsthalle Zürich Association) is its operating body; it is funded by members, patrons, sponsors and subventions. Kunsthalle Zürich is significantly supported by Stadt Zürich Kultur (City of Zürich Culture) and Kanton Zürich Fachstelle Kultur (Canton of Zürich Culture Department).
