About this space

Kunstraum is a well-proportioned space for photography and film shoots, exhibitions, live music events, talks and screenings. For daylight events, it's a very light and airy space with windows on three sides of the building and skylights overhead. The space can be full blackout using window and skylight covers and 27 running meters of heavy Molton black-out curtain.

– Please note for live music events we require a full day booking to allow for the time required to set-up and clean after the event –

We have a wide range of equipment for different uses of the space including: film and photo lighting systems; a very powerful high-quality sound system and sound desk; stage lighting with an overhead lighting rig and lighting control desk; woodworking equipment for making exhibitions or building sets; and various furniture, plants and props.

Host rules

Kunstraum is located in a residential area so we have a strict 11pm curfew and we ask event organisers to make sure their guests vacate the surrounding area after this time to prevent disturbance to our neighbours. For film and photo shoots you can continue working until midnight.

In order to ensure Kunstraum is a safe space for the public, for all events we ask that hosts have a designated person in charge of the the door and a plan in place to deal with any security situations in case they arise.

Community Contract:
We ask everyone who uses Kunstraum to agree to our community contract which holds that: To join Kunstraum’s community you must respect all of its members; this community rejects all forms of discrimination, including racism, sexism/ misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and discrimination of class, religion, belief or age.

Cancellation policy: Very flexible

Thomas was amazingly helpful, he stayed with us the whole day helping us set everything up and giving advice too. He let us use high-quality audio and video equipment and helped us install it too. The venue is tidy and clean, in a great location and big enough for the event I put together, Thomas is trustworthy and available. I would definitely consider the venue again!

If I had to really say anything negative it would be the fact that given that I booked the venue in summer and there's no air conditioner at the venue we felt the heat a little. However, the event was held in the evening and nobody complained about it!
