Kunsthalle BÜHNE

From 2011-2014 the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf carried out Kunsthalle BÜHNE, an interdisciplinary format featuring various music, performance, dance and theater events. The multifaceted project was developed to always accompany the most current exhibitions, so that the performing artists could better engage in a dialogue with the audience.
Collaborators included the Düsseldorf Theater, which served as a location for the first event, BeatTheater2011 (on stage), as well as the FFT Düsseldorf and the German Opera on the Rhine. It is thanks to the close cooperation with these institutions and the artists that this boundary-transcending project was fostered, developed, and finally brought to fruition.
Through this unusual format the Kunsthalle BÜHNE was able to access new visitors, and through extensive intermediary work, bridged the gap between performers and the general public, for example by fostering cross-generational programs with direct participation at schools and senior homes.
The interdisciplinary format Kunsthalle BÜHNE was initiated by the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf together with

the Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf Art and Culture Foundation, and the Provincial Rheinland Insurance Culture and Social Foundation.

The project ended in January 2014 with the closing festival, Kunsthalle BÜHNE: Das Fest!. For two days the rooms of the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Kunstverein for Rhineland and Westfalia, Kom(m)ödchen and Salon des Amateurs were open to the public for concerts, performances, workshops, and talks. With over 100 participants and over a thousand guests, the festival at Grabbeplatz was a befitting finale to the Kunsthalle BÜHNE event series.
