The Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung (in short: Kunsthalle Munich) is the most important and best known facility of the Hypo Cultural Foundation. The Foundation was established in 1983 by the former Hypotheken- und Wechselbank to mark the occasion of its 150th anniversary. Two years later, on 14 June 1985, the Kunsthalle opened its doors for the general public. Nested between Marienplatz and Odeonsplatz in the heart of Munich, the Kunsthalle organises three exhibitions annually and has built up an international reputation.
The most important criterion for the selection of an exhibition theme is an outstanding level of artistic quality. Art and culture from around the world are displayed here in, whether it be painting, sculpture, graphic arts, photography, handcrafts or design. Monographic exhibitions and themed projects share the spotlight, however, the Kunsthalle also pursues an interdisciplinary approach in its diverse programme.
