The Kunsthalle Münster has presented national and international contemporary art since its opening in 1991. The institution focusses on current trends and socially relevant themes in alternating exhibitions. It regards itself as a production centre and laboratory. Solo and group exhibitions reflect the world of art on the local, national and international level. The Kunsthalle Münster is a place for experiencing art sensually, but also for engaging in an exchange of ideas and theoretical reflexion. A diversified programme of talks, lectures, guided tours, film screenings, symposia and performances supplements the exhibitions. The Kunsthalle thus promotes and inspires an intensive and controversial debate on contemporary art and topical issues of social interest.
As a part of the Office for Cultural Affairs, the Kunsthalle Münster is not only responsible for the programme at the Hafenweg, but also oversees the works of Münster’s Public Collection.
With Dog Eye, scheduled from 13 Sep. to 22 Nov. 2020, the Kunsthalle Münster is presenting the first solo exhibition in a German institution of the artist Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, currently living in Brazil. His works—comprising installations, films, sound-based works, photographs, drawings, holograms and sculptures—are marked by a poetic approach of overlapping geometric and abstract forms with organic elements: branches, leaves, insects and recently also dogs serve as integral components of Daniel Steegmann Mangrané’s works. He combines and intertwines these to create an overall structure that subtly brings us to question our own position in the world, and thus also our attitude toward our environment. We are called upon to rethink the prevailing western perception based on binary thinking, in terms of subject and object, nature and culture.
