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.

In this respect, it is both a location for established art and negotiation site for current societal issues as well as future developments.
