Statement

The Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst und Medien (KM–), which was reopened and newly positioned in the year 2013 following extensive renovation work, shows the contemporary art of present-day international currents in which outstanding Styrian artists are involved. Künstlerhaus KM– stands for a house of art and its media—a place where the exhibition, production, and discussion of art are brought up to date, serving as a platform for essential issues concerning artistic producers and also visitors who actively partake in related discourse.

The Künstlerhaus KM– as a newfound art institution is fully aware of its historicity and takes a programmatic approach that addresses questions of the topicality of art in a ever-changing, mediatised society. At the Künstlerhaus KM–, current positions in the visual arts and their mediatic forms are introduced through an experiment-orientated, open concept and potential of art. A multifaceted programme ensures quality in the relations between the public and the artwork, featuring both solo exhibitions and thematic group shows, which in 2014 will once again be accompanied by an events programme of comprehensive scope: The series “An Art Day’s Night” on Thursday evenings at 6pm provides a programme of artist talks, panel discussions, lectures, catalogue presentations, performances, concerts and general debate on and about art…
