ABOUT US

ar/ge kunst, Bolzano’s Kunstverein, was founded on the premises of Via Museo 29 in 1985, where it still stands today.
The name ar/ge kunst is an abbreviation of the German word ‘Arbeitsgemeinschaft’ (working group), which was chosen to promote the idea of collective work on the language of contemporary art and on its relationship with disciplines such as architecture, design, performance and cinema. This objective was to be achieved with and for members and visitors alike.
The institution’s mission is to produce and present regional, national and international artistic practices and to conduct critical research on the role of art and its relationship with the social and political sphere within which it operates.
In recent years ar/ge kunst has turned its attention toward the idea of the exhibition as a medium. This has involved various formats including workshops, residences, lectures and performances, which all take place in parallel with the exhibitions so as to expand the scope of research and facilitate the transmission of knowledge.
