Kunsthaus Bregenz (KUB)

Designed by the renowned Swiss architect Peter Zumthor, the Kunsthaus Bregenz (KUB) is located in the light of Lake Constance.

The Kunsthaus Bregenz is one of Europe’s leading museums of contemporary art and renowned far beyond the borders of the Vorarlberg. Since its foundation it has successfully established itself on the international art scene. Its specific profile is based on the brilliance of its architecture, the quality of its program and the openness of its discourse. Its task is to provide information on the development and trends in contemporary international and national visual art. The Kunsthaus Bregenz focuses its work on the dialogue between art, architecture and society.

Architecture

The KUB stands in the light of Lake Constance. It was constructed in 1997 by the internationally renowned and Pritzker Award-winning Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. Thus, the Kunsthaus Bregenz is one of the world’s most important museum buildings of contemporary architecture. Designed as a daylight museum, the building impresses with its significant exterior form and the non-compromising implementation of its spatial concept.

The encounter with art is more intimate and intense here than in other exhibition spaces. Such encounters necessarily raise fundamental questions, concerning individual perceptions, the nature of the art, and the individual’s sense of themselves.

Several works from recent years are being shown in Bregenz, including If and only If (2018), a filmed elegy by Igor Stravinsky, depicting a violist with a snail crawling along his bow. Kunsthaus Bregenz with its auratic presence and special acoustics offers the perfect space for Anri Sala’s art.

KUB 2021.04
Otobong Nkanga
23 | 10 | 2021 – 09 | 01 | 2022

Otobong Nkanga addresses the complex and shifting relationship between humans, land, and corresponding structures of repair. By weaving together various mediums such as installation, tapestry, and storytelling, Nkanga’s work spans the temporality and subterranean effects of regimes acting on living beings. Especially in a time of climate urgencies and crises, such an exhibition is of great importance.

      Kunsthaus Bregenz

      Description

      An artistic haven where visitors can enjoy a stirring collection of artworks in peace. With the administrative facilities, shops and cafe all housed elsewhere, the gallery building is solely dedicated to hosting exhibitions.

       

      The eye-catching facade features finely etched glass panels that surround the entire cube-shaped structure. These allow light to permeate into the areas between the individual floors and indirectly reach the exhibition spaces.

       

      Design: Peter Zumthor,…
