The gallery was founded in 1961 and moved to its current premises in 2001 in downtown Vienna. The medieval structure of the gallery offers a unique and unusual setting for the presentation of contemporary art. The artists have three independent levels at their disposal. A separate, space-related concept was created for the majority of the exhibitions shown
created. With its program, the gallery endeavors – quite willing to take risks – to show less well-known positions and to carry out this development work.
To expand the focus, curators are invited to develop their own thematic exhibitions.
