Innovative and extremely trendy, the KIT is located undergound in a quirky, twisting elliptical free space left by the construction of two traffic tunnels below the Düsseldorf promenade. Following construction in 1997, the spectacular space was occasionally used for events. Following further development its inauguration took place in 2007.
KIT Kunst im Tunnel is a hub for exciting contemporary art covering the fields of sculpture, painting, photography, video and installation art. Some four to six fascinating exhibitions with exciting audiences take place every year. Invitations to opening events are eagerly awaited by those in the know.
Entrance to the art venue is through an equally impressive glass pavilion located on the promenade facing the Rhine. The KIT Cafe is a great place to sit and enjoy or simply contemplate, inside or out.
