Kunstmuseum Appenzell

With the Kunstmuseum Appenzell and the Kunsthalle Ziegelhütte, the Heinrich Gebert Kulturstiftung Appenzell offers an extraordinary encounter with art, achitecture, and nature in the Appenzell region.
The Kunstmuseum and Kunsthalle are run by the private foundation Heinrich Gebert Kulturstiftung Appenzell. The striking buildings were endowed by the patron of arts Heinrich Gebert (1917-2007). The Kunstmuseum Appenzell, designed by Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer, opened in 1998. The Kunsthalle Ziegelhütte, converted by Robert Bamert, has supplemented the cultural offerings as an exhibition, concert, and event location since 2003. With the Kunstmuseum Appenzell and the Kunsthalle Ziegelhütte as architectural monuments, the foundation facilitates a tour rich in experience through the regional and international history of art, architecture, and industry – from the round kiln from the 16th century to the shiny chrome saw-tooth roof, from manufacturing to knowledge culture.

Current exhibitions

Hans Arp - The architectural works

-
Numerous exhibitions were dedicated to the world artist Hans Arp (1886-1966), which were either anthologically oriented or illuminated certain aspects of his oeuvre. However, there are still areas that have received little attention to this day, such as Arp's works that were created in connection with architectural projects. This subject has hardly been dealt with in literature to date, and hardly at all in exhibitions - an attractive gap that the exhibition at least partially closes.

The exhibition is documented in the following languages: D/F/E
