The Kunstraum of Leuphana University Lüneburg is a project space for exhibitions, lectures, workshops, conferences, film screenings and performances. It offers students the opportunity to work with artists and curators, developing exhibitions, encountering artistic perspectives and practices and dealing with current questions of contemporary art. Leuphana University is one of the few universities in the German-speaking world with an art space, where academic and artistic practices meet. The Kunstraum was founded in 1993 by Beatrice von Bismarck, Diethelm Stoller and Ulf Wuggenig. Following the early years and the particular focus on institutional critique, for example with Andrea Fraser, Renee Green and Christian Boltanski, artists and curators such as Marion von Osten, Ruth Noack, Roger Buergel, Joshua Simon, Alice Creischer, Andreas Siekmann have further sharpened the profile of the Kunstraum as an experimental teaching and exhibition space. With the beginning of the summer semester 2022, Christopher Weickenmeier is responsible for the curation of the Kunstraum. Over the next few years, the Kunstraum’s program will be dedicated to reconfiguring institutional critique as a proliferating form of institutional practices. By working on and in this space, contemporary artists question both the material and ideational conditions of art institutions and artistic practice today - and thus of the Kunstraum itself.
