Groundbreaking exhibitions in unique spaces

The Kunsthaus Graz is an exhibition centre that combines international contemporary art with regional and local themes and objectives.

It stages exhibitions on current social issues, initiates the production of new artworks and realizes diverse educational projects. Further to this, it promotes discussion around art, design, architecture and exhibiting per se. In order to implement its visions, the Kunsthaus Graz works with a network of partner institutions—both locally and across the world. 

We are committed to ensuring that everyone can share in art and culture, as is reflected in both our artistic programme and our comprehensive range of art education experiences. The Kunsthaus Graz is part of the Universalmuseum Joanneum and is supported by the Province of Styria and the City of Graz.
