Kunsthalle3000 is an institution as intervention that seeks to transform the unused potentials of the public realm into new situations. 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. To date, it has been located in the public space of Vienna, Johannesburg, Geneva, Beirut, Paris and Nice. From 2018-2019 Kunsthalle3000 was a one-year guest at Kunstverein Langenhagen and in 2022 it collaborated with CAC Brétigny.
