KiS stands for exhibitions - and more

Seefeld becomes a new meeting place for art lovers

Alte Feuerwehrhalle, Ausstellung David LaChapelle

At the beginning of the year 2021 an idea takes shape. The municipality of Seefeld made the Old Fire Brigade Hall in Seefeld, which is no longer in constant use, available as an exhibition venue for contemporary art. This project, which is completely new for Seefeld, owes its success to the gallery owner and art collector Rafael Jablonka and his wife Teresa, who make world-class works of art accessible to a broad public.

The seven-year cooperation was significantly strengthened at the beginning of 2022. Nine founders are enthusiastic about this idea of art education in rural areas - they meet at the Alpin Resort Sacher for the founding meeting of an association.

Kunstausstellung Kunst in Seefeld

Association for the promotion of contemporary art in Seefeld

Our tasks

To enable as many interested people as possible to encounter contemporary art, to organize attractive supporting programs and to implement the idea of art education consistently and professionally. Free access to the exhibitions should keep the inhibition threshold as low as possible and enable all people living or visiting here to experience art.

Within the framework of art education, great emphasis is placed on cooperation with schools and universities. KiS - Art in Seefeld also organizes artistic encounters at concerts, readings, lectures ....

From the very beginning, in addition to the municipality of Seefeld, the Seefeld Tourism Association has been a strong cooperation partner of our initiative.

Contemporary art

Contemporary art is the focus of the twice-yearly changing exhibitions in the Old Fire Station in Seefeld: names such as David LaChapelle, Andy Warhol or Miquel Barceló vouch for this.
