Located directly beneath the #rhine Promenade in #düsseldorf in a space nestled between two major road #tunnels, #kit#kunstimtunnel was inaugurated in 2007 as a spectacular meeting place and focal point for #contemporaryart. @KunstImTunnel is situated on the same latitude as the Ministry for Families and the former State Chancellery in the #horionplatz. The space had already been used experimentally for events following the completion of the Rhine Promenade project in 1995. However, the idea of using the space as a permanent site – promoted chiefly by the #artscene – was out of the question at the time for health and safety reasons. The architectural studio @FritschiStahlBaum, which had already delivered the plans and design for the Rhine Promenade, was commissioned in 2006 – the inaugural year of the #quadriennaledüsseldorf – to develop a concept for the realisation of an #exhibitionspace. Visitors can access the #subterranean exhibition space through the #kitcafé and via a large flight of stairs or the lift: the space itself follows an elliptical arc for some 140 metres and runs parallel to the Rhine. The height of the ceiling and the width of the space vary. The works themselves are displayed in between the bare #concrete walls and are produced by the various young and emerging artists invited to exhibit there by KIT’s artistic director, #gertrudpeters. From around four to six alternating exhibitions are staged each year. The main focus of the programme is the presentation of emerging, contemporary art across a range of genres, such as #sculpture, #painting, #photography, #videoart and installation. Also part of KIT’s avowed remit is to encourage, promote and support an exchange between international #emergingartists.
