Shedhalle – Critical Art in Zurich

Activity space and showroom in the grounds of the Rote Fabrik, directly on the shores of Lake Zurich.

The Shedhalle is situated in the grounds of the Rote Fabrik in Zurich, which has served as a cultural center since the early 1980s.

The Shedhalle is a space for contemporary art that casts a critical eye over socio-political developments. Temporary exhibitions here focus on issues ranging from politics to cultural phenomena and from social roles and exclusion to alternative ways of life. These issues are explored from a range of perspectives – from the viewpoint of artists, activists, and scientists.

Themed weeks, movie presentations, and talks offer in-depth analysis of a range of key issues and conflicts from all over the world.
