Kunsthaus Essen is a forum for the exploration of contemporary art. Every year in the gallery between eight and ten exhibitions take place, as well as international projects.
The Kunsthaus Essen is an innovative combination of studio spaces and Art Association (Kunstverein). At Kunsthaus Essen, Art is created, exhibited and communicated.
Since its inception in 1977, the Kunsthaus has given numerous exhibition projects an international reputation. The house maintains active contacts with regional, national and international cultural institutions and is an integral part of a network that is geared to the transfer and mutual exchange of artistic ideas.
