Within the field of international contemporary art, Nikolaj Kunsthal, Copenhagen Contemporary Art Centre’s exhibition profile focuses on art that reflects and addresses current political, social and cultural issues.

Our exhibition profile is based on dialogue between Danish and international art, on bringing historical perspectives to new material and media multiplicity, stylistic diversity, art in public spaces, digitally based art and – not least – an openness to new developments. We show art that has not been shown before and that can generate, inspire and intervene in social debates.

Nikolaj Kunsthal, Copenhagen Contemporary Art Centre presents 5-6 Danish and international exhibitions every year, exhibitions that give visitors the opportunity to encounter experimental and innovative art - including our annual exhibition for children and young people.

Our exhibition program consists of solo or thematic group exhibitions that fill the monumental spaces in our historical building – galleries that are ideal for exhibiting installations of multimedia works that incorporate the space around them as an important part of the artwork
