Kunstraum is an artist-run hub, incubator and gallery space in Brooklyn offering 3 months, 6 months and 12 months residencies which includes studio workspace, studio visits, exhibition opportunities & professional services in Brooklyn.

Residency Programme since: 2015
Description of Organisation:

In February 2015, we opened the gallery and artist-hub Kunstraum by the Navy Yard in Brooklyn. As an interdisciplinary team of curators, artists, and architects, we seek to promote emerging art, as well as outstanding exhibition concepts featuring both established and emerging art.

Kunstraum is both a gallery and a studio space. Our concept features both a gallery and co-working space spread between two 1,000 square foot lofts. The lofts are situated in a beautifully renovated factory building in the historically artistic neighborhood of Clinton Hill.

Kunstraum aims to redefine the way artists and curators collaborate. By opening our gallery to different art professionals interested in sharing engaging ideas, unconventional thinking, and risk taking, Kunstraum pushes the parameters of emerging, international, contemporary art.

Kunstraum is born out of a necessity to create community and foster collaboration between artists, architects, curators, designers, filmmakers and writers. The Kunstraum model features excellent studio locations, networking, research opportunities and discourse for creative production. Kunstraum’s global identity is designed to offer and promote international mobility and visibility.
