Writing on the history and current state of the Kunsthalle. Tips for literature, articles or your own points of view are welcome! The article is part of a bigger field analysis initiated by BAM. After some first reading, it seems that these categories – museum, Kunsthalle and small art space – are ever harder to hold on to. Museums try to do everything, Kunsthalles – once museums without a collection – have sometimes started to collect, and small art spaces are sometimes as big or even bigger than a Kunsthalle. Are we all doing everything at the same time? Is that a good thing or would it be better to try and define who does what in the artfield?
