Kunstraum Innsbruck

KUNSTRAUM INNSBRUCK is an art institution that facilitates encounters with the phenomenon of contemporary art. It was founded in 1996 as a non-profit association for the exhibition of contemporary art.

KUNSTRAUM INNSBRUCK presents aesthetic concepts, but is also a space for socio-political issues. Art has the power to communicate life through a different language, so that we can experience new things and change our way of thinking.

The program of KUNSTRAUM INNSBRUCK is based on the topics on the pulse of our time: queer/feminism, decolonizing perspectives, political movements, discussions about changes in ecosystems and the coexistence of diverse species. We mainly feature exhibitions by international artists, but local actors also play an important role in our program.

We organize exhibitions, actions, lectures, workshops, discussions, artist talks, readings and concerts. We also organize parties and get-togethers to celebrate our work and engagement with our community! You are invited to join us!

The building in which Kunstraum Innsbruck is located was built in the 1930s and was originally a paper warehouse. Already in the 60s it was temporarily used as an alternative space for low-budget exhibitions. In 1996 it was rebuilt on private initiative and newly adapted with modern exhibition infrastructure. Since then, Kunstraum Innsbruck has been run as a non-profit association. In 2004, the premises of Kunstraum Innsbruck were reduced in size and remodeled. The other part of the former Kunstraum was rented by Galerie Thoman.
