The Kunsthaus Hamburg is a centre for contemporary art, centrally located in Germany’s second biggest city of Hamburg. On 500 square meters, the former market hall hosts five to eight varying solo and group exhibitions annually, presenting works from contemporary visual arts and related disciplines. The main emphasis of the programme lies on supporting the up-and-coming generation of artists; moreover, historical work and topics with particular relationships to Hamburg are part of the programme. Beyond its role as an exhibition venue, the Kunsthaus is a space of communication and a forum for the discussion of issues relevant to today’s society. Over the last years, its initial focus on the Hamburg art scene has been expanded to decentralized perspectives in contemporary art and its contexts.

The house has featured solo exhibitions by prominent Hamburg artists such as Rolf Rose (1995), Clivia Vorrath, Friedrich Einhoff (2009), or Jan Meyer-Rogge (2012) as well as exhibitions by well-known artists from a younger generation, such as Jochen Lempert (1999), Stefan Panhans and Alicja Kwade (2008), Daniel Richter (2009), Thorsten Brinkmann (2001), Ulla von Brandenburg (2013), Christian Jankowski (2015). Recently the program included solo shows be international renowned artists like Khalil Rabah (2015), Bani Abidi (2016), Ida Ekblad, Tejal Shah (2017), Flaka Haliti, and Shirana Shahbazi (2018), Edith Dekyndt (2019), Goutam Ghosh (2019), Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor (2020). In 2021 Kunsthaus Hamburg hosted the first institutional solo exhibition of Venezuelan artist Carlos León Zambrano and will show Ilana Harris-Babou’s first European solo exhibition in October.
