The Kunsthalle Exnergasse in the WUK Werkstätten- und Kulturhaus [House of Artwork and Culture] in Vienna defines itself as an open platform and exhibition space for the presentation and realization of projects belonging to innovative, experimental and contemporary art in its most different formats and forms.
The Kunsthalle Exnergasse is not commercially oriented and has regarded itself from the beginning as a place dedicated particularly to the artist and the artists’ needs. Corresponding exhibition programmes are decided upon by an Advisory Panel in cooperation with the manager of the Kunsthalle Exnergassse whereby process oriented group projects are preferred. Interdisciplinary events are held within the programme of exhibitions in the 400 square meter space, such as symposiums, lectures, readings, concerts and catalogue presentations.
Kunsthalle Exnergasse invites you to submit exhibition proposals for the year 2007.
Application Review Process
The application and review process includes 2 Steps:
Open Call for project proposals.

You can send your application preferably per email or regular mail.
To evaluate the proposals we would need: concept (500 words), name and a short CV of person/curator submitting the project and names of the people who participate in this project.

These pre-selected projects will be invited to submit a more developed proposal including additional material like catalogues, DVDs, videotapes and short CVs of people participating in this project.
Kunsthalle Exnergasse and an Advisory Panel will then make the final selection of 5 -7 projects.
The selected projects will be presented at Kunsthalle Exnergasse in 2007.
All projects in Step 2 will be informed about the results via email.
