This institution aims to be a place of artistic production. An estimated 85% of works are made by artists specifically for exhibitions at the Kunstverein, and are financed by it.

It occupies three rooms plus the foyer, with around 350 square meters of exhibition space, in the former brewery with large windows facing the inner courtyard.
