Library © Eva Würdinger


The library of the Kunstraum Niederoesterreich offers visitors and art lovers extensive opportunities for research and scholarly exploration of art. The library stocks currently include more than 2900 media on the art of the 20th and 21st centuries, with the thematic emphasis on contemporary art and performance art.

National and international exhibition catalogues, monographs on artists and relevant theoretical journals and magazines on contemporary art, lexicons and reference works can be browsed, read and studied.

In the framework of each exhibition, the participating artists make recommendations of books to be included in the stocks of the reference library. During the exhibition the recommended books are available as handsets. Visitors thus have the opportunity to inform themselves on the exhibition in depth. Alongside acquiring media through purchases, the stocks are being constantly expanded through the exchange of publications with numerous arts and cultural institutions, which offer information on current trends in contemporary art.
