Kunsthalle Mannheim – A Museum in Motion:

Dynamic and thrilling, innovative and open to the world.

Mission Statement - Art becomes part of the city

The Kunsthalle Mannheim is one of the oldest civic collections of modern art in the world. Our identity has been shaped by major works by artists from Edouard Manet to William Kentridge as well as an outstanding focus on sculpture. We have been committed to championing the avant-garde and posing society’s existential questions for over 100 years.

We are creating our future in a visionary new building, seeing ourselves as a city within a city. We are following a comprehensive digital strategy as a democratic institution.

We think of exhibitions and artist projects as instruments for transcultural communication. The Kunsthalle is a meeting place for people of all generations and cultural backgrounds, housing inspiring art and hosting current debates.
