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.

The KUB stands in the light of Lake Constance. The architecture is an indispensable platform for the international exhibition programme.

Exhibitions

 

Dora Budor
19 | 03 – 26 | 06 | 2022
Dora Budor’s work appeals to all the senses. For her KUB exhibition, she intervenes directly in the visual sensuality of the Zumthor building. She makes the exhibition space itself her material, turns the interior inside out and brings the hidden to the surface. A series of completely new works is created for Bregenz, triggering a disturbing reversal of perception.

Jordan Wolfson
16 | 07 – 09 | 10 | 2022
Jordan Wolfson is internationally known for his virtual reality illusions that transport museum visitors into a computer-animated world. Shock, violence and brutality play a central role in his works, and he also incorporates clichés. Crudeness is mixed with black humour.

Anna Boghiguian
22 | 10 | 2022 – 22 | 01 | 2023
Her installations are memorable and unmistakable: since 2010, Anna Boghiguian has been painting figures on cardboard, three-dimensional mobiles or arranged into scenes. Born in Egypt, her family emigrated to Canada. From there, she moved between continents, cultures and media throughout her life. The point of reference for her colourful works is the history and works of literature.

KUB Billboards

Dora Budor
Dog Days (Hundstage)
19 | 03 – 26 | 06 | 2022
KUB was developed on a site that was an inner-city wasteland. Following Dora Budor’s request to find the remaining “terrains vagues” of Bregenz, due to the dense concentration of real estate investment only six sites could be located by the staff of KUB, Stefan Wagner and Lisa Hann. In the early summer, they documented the sites in pictures. These six unremarkable pockets of the city are presented on the glossy advertising billboards.
The KUB billboards located on Seestraße, the main thoroughfare in Bregenz, are an integral part of Kunsthaus Bregenz’s program, extending each KUB exhibition into public space.

      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,…
