Kunstraum Dornbirn was founded in 1987 as a private association with the aim of presenting and communicating contemporary art. Since 2003, the exhibitions in the historic assembly hall of the former Rüschwerke machine factory in the Dornbirn Municipal Gardens have afforded superb conditions for the presentation of largescale installations. The raw quality of the original architecture provides an ideal space for exhibiting current trends in international art. A maximum of four exhibitions per year are devoted to showing both established, internationally renowned and new, up-and-coming artists.
