La Kunsthalle is Mulhouse’s centre for contemporary art. It is located in la Fonderie, a building it shares with the University of Haute-Alsace, and organises exhibitions and other events based on artistic creation and research.

Every year La Kunsthalle takes on a visiting exhibition curator, as well as a number of guest artists participating in exchange or research programmes. Thanks to its commitment and wide selection of events, La Kunsthalle is able to build close relationships with other art centres in the local area, across the Swiss and German borders, and further afield. Within 700 sq of gallery space La Kunsthalle both displays and produces temporary exhibitions dedicated to contemporary art. These exhibitions focus either on the work of one artist, or on a theme appearing in various artists’ work.

La Kunsthalle promotes artistic creation and makes it easily accessible through its numerous events. La Kunsthalle participates regularly in highlights of the cultural season, such as the Regionale, a local crossborder event. It also asks graduates of Hear, Haute école des arts du Rhin, to participate in one of its projects.

La Kunsthalle offers its facilities to visiting artists and exhibition curators, confirming its role as a setting for both creation and appreciation of art.
