Although Germany has traditionally invested heavily in the arts public purse strings have tightened over the years. New concepts were needed so the Cubus Kunsthalle in Duisburg has done just that.

The city has handed over the building and Cubus gathers together sponsors. The innovative approach they implemented works. Diversity and quality reveals a program with wide ranging and attractive, temporary exhibitions of mostly contemporary art by internationally and nationally renowned artists.

The inclusion of young and lesser well known artists plays an important factor in the young art venue’s strategy, which also includes art education, especially for children and adolescents. 

Located in the Kantpark in the heart of the city, the Cubus Kunsthalle’s  ambitious and diverse cultural program is famous beyond the boundaries of the Ruhr Metropolis.
