Where do we find the untapped potential in public space? How might this potential be maximised to create new situations that reclaim this space for democratic use? Kunsthalle3000 is an institution as intervention that seeks to answer these questions by engaging directly with public space.The term Kunsthalle is used in German-speaking countries for a special kind of municipal museum, the historical aim of which was to make art accessible to all people. “Eine Kunsthalle für alle” [A Kunsthalle for all], was a phrase that marked the beginning of the Kunsthalle tradition with the statutes of Kunsthalle Mannheim in 1909. Kunsthalle3000 follows this principle by literally declaring specific spots within public space as Kunsthalle to create an intensive, yet temporary locale for performance, discussion, confrontation and interchange.
Kunsthalle3000 is a project by Thomas Geiger. To date, it has been located in Vienna, Johannesburg, Geneva, Beirut and Paris.
