Three institutions – one building: under the title The Anniversaries! the Hallenbau Festival 2022 celebrates 25 years of the Städtische Galerie Karlsruhe and the ZKM | Karlsruhe in the Hallenbau as well as 30 years of the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG).

Hall A has been one of the foremost art locations in Karlsruhe since the 1990s. With a length of 312 meters, 10 inner courtyards, as well as 16,500 square meters of floor space, the listed industrial architecture building from the 20th century is an urban landmark located between the western and southwestern city, which is renowned far beyond the city of Karlsruhe.

From Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, the Hallenbau Festival 2022 offers a program of culture across all genres: exhibitions, films, concerts, lectures, debates, guided tours, retrospectives, and outlooks.

The Hallenbau Festival 2022 starts on Friday evening in the foyer of the ZKM. With welcoming speeches the festival and at the same time two new exhibitions as well as the BookBau Festival of the HfG will open. The Städtische Galerie presents the exhibition Drawing Rooms: Marcel van Eeden | Karl Hubbuch and the ZKM Marijke van Warmerdam. Then, now, and then.

Admission is free throughout the building during the Festival.
