Bregenz art musuem
The Bregenz art museum was opened in 1997 and is nicknamed “KUB”, which both represents the initials of its German name (Kunsthaus Bregenz) and the fact that its building resembles a cube, which unconventially but nonetheless noticeably sits in the middle of this town close to Lake Constance. One should not think of KUB as a typical museum, but rather as a space that offers the framework for contemporary exhibitions, usually especially curated for KUB. Sculptures, installations, performance art or readings - all parts of artistic endeavour are continually being redefined and presented to the public. For a few years now, KUB has started building a permanent collection, not in order to fully represent a specific genre, but rather to reflect the houses’ cultural memory, based on its previous exhibitions.
