1849 – 2024 175 years Kunsthalle Bremen

175 years Kunsthalle Bremen

Last year, the Kunstverein in Bremen celebrated its 200th anniversary. This year, it is the Kunstverein's home turn: on 1 May 2024, the Kunsthalle Bremen has turned 175 years old. It was the first building of a civic art association in Germany and one of the first Kunsthallen in the world. To mark the 175th anniversary, the museum is focussing on the architecture of the building and is displaying the architectural plans from 1847 and 1898/1899 in the collection until the end of May 2024.
