Kunsthalle Wien


Photography, video, film, installations and new media are the focus of programs that run for three to six months at this collection of exhibition halls in the MuseumsQuartier. An open-plan layout, soaring ceilings and functionality make it a prized showcase for local and international contemporary art. Weekend visits include one-hour guided tours in English and German. The Sunday tours (Halle 1 at 3pm, Halle 2 at 4pm) focus on a theme.
