Based in Halle (Saale), the art society Kunstverein “Talstraße” e.V., a non-profit organisation, has become a key player in the region’s art and culture scene in the last 25 years since its foundation. Exhibiting modern art in all its facets, the society also organises discussions and publishes exhibition catalogues and books about art in the region.

In 1991, shortly after the fall of the Berlin wall, the art association Kunstverein “Talstraße” e.V. was founded.Three years later, in 1994, the society took permanent residence in a late classicistic villa near castle Giebichenstein in Halle, Saxony-Anhalt. It has since then become an art centre with regular exhibitions, readings and discussions about arts and politics.
