The Künstlerhaus Wien at Karlsplatz is a traditional house of the arts. The historic building was built in a central location next to the world-famous Musikverein as a center for presentations and exhibitions by the Association of Visual Artists in 1868.
After 1945 the building was continuously adapted to a modern place for exhibitions, since 1949 there is also a cinema and a theatre at the Künstlerhaus.
Today the house is still owned by the Association of Visual Artists. This association comprises 5 sections - painting, sculpture, architecture, applied arts as well as film and audiovisual arts with about 500 artist members.
The Künstlerhaus can also be rented for private and business festivities. It is an exclusive setting for receptions, cocktails, gala dinners, product presentations, vernissages, press conferences and many more. Enjoy the special atmosphere.
