In Greek symposion means “to drink together”. In most of today’s symposia the drinks have evaporated. What remains is a generative togetherness that the expert discussions and academic presentations at Kunsthalle Zürich aspire.

Such as the Hannah Weiner Day with Franziska Glozer, during 30 Years of Kunsthalle Zürich,  at On Pun and Punishment with Avery Singer, and  Un-like with Ed Atkins. 

Kunsthalle Zürich often goes beyond its exhibitions, particularly by hosting different forms of performances gathered in this section of our theory and education programs: Art that takes place, that speaks, screams, sings and sighs to us.

Openki[PopUp] war für die Dauer der Ausstellung Rob Pruitt: The Church eine Kooperation zwischen und der Kunsthalle Zürich. Während dieser Zeit wurden die Räumlichkeiten der Kunsthalle Zürich Ort für einen hürdenfreien Zugang zu Bildung, für Kurse und Workshops, und somit zu einer Bildungsstätte.

Theory Tuesdays ist ein Format von Philip Matesic, das regelmässig in der Kunsthalle Zürich gastiert. Jeweils dienstags und mit einem Bier werden Theorietexte gemeinsam diskutiert. Mit dem Motto «Each one, Teach one» basiert Theory Tuesdays auf der Annahme, dass alle Teilnehmenden etwas zu einer Sitzung beisteuern können.


How does an idea transform into an art object and ultimately into an exhibition? What is their meaning and relevance? What ideas come into play? What can form do? What can art history do? These questions pose themselves again and again. By way of artist talkssymposia and workshopsperformancesguided tours, and special programs for families, kids and schools, we create entryways into contemporary art and its thinking.
