The unique cubist construction of the Kunsthalle was built in 1967 from pre­fab­ri­cat­ed blocks of con­crete, an inexpensive material at the time. The building has survived the challenges of time, been carefully renovated and accepted as one of Düsseldorf’s modern-day art institutions.

Its exterior architecture may be challenging but its interior functionality is intense. The interior spaces are vast, pure and flooded with light. Thus, every exhibit comes to life, the interaction with art lovers highly rewarding.

The Kunsthalle can focus entirely on staging magnificent exhibitions since it owns no collection. It’s reputation is astounding and its concept unique. Their varied programme focusses on contemporary art. Exhibitions present both individuals and groups of artists. Their brief includes education and interaction with the public.

The adjacent Salon des Amateurs is a quirky place to visit at any time, day or night.
