Kunsthalle Zürich
The Kunsthalle Zürich will re-open to the public in its new permanent home in the Löwenbräu art complex in Zurich on 10 June 2012 with the special exhibition, Looking Back for the Future. Since it was founded in 1985, the Kunsthalle Zürich has established itself as one of Europe’s most influential art institutions, helping to define the direction of contemporary art. Having moved to a series of different venues in its early years, the Kunsthalle has been based in the Löwenbräu art complex since 1996.
