The Kunsthalle model - a space for showing rather than collecting art - continues to proliferate. As an institutional form chiefly committed to new and experimental practices, it is often tasked with reflecting the social, cultural, and aesthetic trends that define contemporaneity. How can the Kunsthalle serve as an incubator for innovation and experimentation, especially for performance and digital art? How will the Kunsthalle model evolve as it expands globally, and how are funding structures for the Kunsthalle changing? In short: How can the Kunsthalle retain its relevance for today and tomorrow?
