Almost risen out of the debris of war as one of Austria’s first cultural buildings - built by Leo Scheu in 1952, the Künstlerhaus was, similar to the documenta venue, dedicated to modernism, and within this context there were many outstanding exhibitions on show (e.g., ambiente/environment within the framework of the Trigon biennial organised by Italy, Austria, and Yugoslavia).


Over the two years, the Künstlerhaus building, which had meanwhile become quite aged, was renovated to its present, contemporary state by the Province of Styria and equipped with infrastructures that make it capable of competing in the international art circuit. A competition for its restoration was announced in 2010. The renowned architecture firm Bramberger Architects was awarded the contract to execute the improvements in collaboration with Austria’s Federal Monuments Office.

Starting on 6 March 2013, the Künstlerhaus will provide 670 square metres of exhibition space encompassing three generous premises (also separately utilizable) in a renovated, barrier-free building with a clearly improved structural fabric, also featuring improved building services, security, air-conditioning, and fire protection.
