Kunsthalle Giessen

The Kunsthalle Giessen is an exhibition space for contemporary art in the town hall of the city of Giessen in Middle Hesse. As a venue for temporary exhibitions without its own permanent collection, it presents current trends and positions in contemporary art over 400 m2. The Kunsthalle’s role is to convey contemporary art in a variety of ways that inspire the public to engage with it, while at the same time addressing social discourse.

The Panel's fellows in the Planetary Scholars & Artists in Residence Program have successfully realized their exhibitions with the cooperation of Kunsthalle Giessen.

  • Exhibition “Unstable Planetary Spaces” by 'Planetary Spaces' summer fellows Jason Waite & Adenike Oladosu, exploring how artists and activists grapple with some of the most challenging long-term disasters of recent times: the shrinking of Lake Chad due to human induced climate change and the irradiated Fukushima exclusion zone after the 2011 nuclear disaster in Japan.
