Shedhalle is an institution of contemporary and critical art in Zurich, Switzerland. It defines itself as a place where new forms of artistic and cultural practices—particularly those related to socio-political topics—can be tried out, produced, and presented within the framework of exhibitions and other events. Shedhalle is a cultural think-tank permanently developing new and self-reflexive approaches to the production and representation of art. Shedhalle is a forum for artists, activists, curators, scientists, theorists, and students, which permits and enables the elucidation of diverse topics in varying constellations. It invites and encourages the devising of new formats, new models of presentation, and new structures. The Shedhalle, forming part of the Rote Fabrik, a compound within the city of Zurich that has been in use as a culture and recreation center since the early 1980s, evolved in 1986 from an interest group of local artists who felt under-represented in the established art system. Since then, the Shedhalle programme has received significant international attention and become an important reference point for an experimental, sociocritical, and contemporary art practice.
