Künstlerhaus was founded in 1978 as an initiative of Stuttgart artists, and has since developed into a contemporary art institution of regional and international significance. Focal points of the exhibition and event programming include the mediation of current tendencies in genres of art, architecture, design, and theory, as well as the conjunction of local and international debates. In addition, Künstlerhaus hosts technical workshops accessible to members, as well as a studio program.
Located in the building of a former luggage factory in Reuchlinstrasse 4B, in Stuttgart-West, Künstlerhaus has four levels with 600 square meters of exhibition space. The institution is financed through the city of Stuttgart and additional private and public funds.
