The Kunst Kraft Werk is pleased to announce our third open call for exhibition proposals, for the 2017 program. Qualified candidates include international and local curators, corporate and cultural institutions, museums, individual artists, group initiatives, and collectives, working in all mediums, with a preference for interdisciplinary practice. Both contemporary and art historical exhibitions are welcomed. We are especially interested in projects that are accompanied by a program of activities, artist’s talks, workshops, or lectures. The number, duration and spacing of the exhibitions are left to the discretion of the KKW, as the space is used for multiple purposes throughout the year. If the entry is a group project, one person must be chosen from that group to represent it and act as a mediator.
Our exhibition space and grounds are particularly well-suited for large scale sculpture, both outdoor and indoor, as well as installation, video projection, and performance. A module wall system allows for two-dimensional works to be shown as well, and for the interior space to be adjusted for each exhibition’s needs. Since our space is currently under renovation, it is important to state that our design objective is not a white cube, however our intention is to maintain the industrial aesthetic of the former gasworks, while incorporating a new lighting/heating/sound system, stage, storage area, restaurant, and beer garden.
