Kunsthalle Bern (Bern Art Gallery) Review

A completely different animal from the Kunstmuseum across town, this groundbreaking contemporary art venue built in 1918 by and for artists (among them Kirchner, Klee, and Giacometti père) seeks to confront, provoke, and engage viewers with the artistic phenomena of today. This translates each year to between six and seven exhibits of work by living artists; they become part of a history that includes Wassily Kandinsky, Henry Moore, Jasper Johns, Sol LeWitt, Bruce Nauman, Christo, and Grandma Moses.
