The Kunsthaus Graz opened its doors in 2003, the architectural piece de resistance of Graz's year as European Capital of Culture. The biomorphous building designed by Peter Cook and Colin Fournier-known locally as the Friendly Alien-has since become an attraction for art lovers and the culturally minded from all over the world. But it has also become an essential landmark in the urban identity of the city of Graz. As an exhibition centre for contemporary art, the Kunsthaus exhibits Austrian and international art from 1960 onwards. Its BIX media facade-designed by Berlin designers realities:united-constitutes a unique fusion of architecture and media technology. Effectively a large screen in the middle of the city, it acts as an instrument of art communication.

this building is very different, somehow it seems to be alive with the various light effects. It certainly sticks out!

The building is nice, but you should really take a look the exhibitions that are taking place there before going.

I expected more than just 3 small exhibitions. Especially the exterior looks very nice! The entrance price is too high - 9 euro.

This building is as unique inside as outside. See it from up on the hill looking down and then go inside. It is bizarre and will make you chuckle.

1 of 2 modern constructions that I went to Graz to see with my own eyes as it was difficult to understand how they could fit into baroque architecture of the town. The Art museum building was built in 2003 when Graz was granted the role of the European Capital of Culture. It looks like some under-the-sea creature for me.... More

Went to see Ai Weiwei and was not disappointed. Very interesting building, great space, inspiring exhibitions, but unfortunately, no dogs, not even a tiny dog in a bag, is allowed.

Nice museum, very modern from the outside. When I went there in May 2016, they changed one exhibition (on one floor), but the price was kept the same - so it was not worth the price, but if all floors are open for exhibition, it is worth the money.

If you are interested in modern art, this is definitely the place to go. For art connoisseurs, this building is worth spending half day. Otherwise, it may feel like there are many other places to see. Artefact in this museum needs lots of training to understand their message they are sending. The exhibition is open to English/German speaking audiences.
