Kunsthal 44 Møen present international contemporary art in Askeby on the island of Møn – halfway between Copenhagen and Berlin.
Kunsthal 44 Møen is based on a longstanding relationship between Møn resident artists like Bjørn Nørgaard, Ursula Reuter Christiansen, the late composer and Fluxus artist Henning Christiansen and international stakeholders connected to the FLUXUS movement with the German curator and art collector René Block at the forefront. Møn has for many years been the center for internationally active artists and others with roots in the Fluxus movement. With this in mind, Henning Christiansen, Bjørn Nørgaard and René Block choose to uphold their long-standing collaboration by forming the association 44 Møen in 2007 and by opening the Kunsthal Møen in 2008.
Since its opening in 2008, the space – a former auto repair shop – has been rebuilt and renovated so that today it is a super modern international art center with exhibitions of high artistic quality. The exhibition program is a combination of current contemporary art with links back to newer avant-garde and Fluxus and conceptualart. The art center hosts the debate concept; KUNSTHAL 44 MØEN IN DIALOGUE, which helps to stimulate the conversation about contemporary art and the capacity to articulate on art - in an informal and local setting.
Kunsthal 44 Møen became a memberof the Danish Association of Art Centers in 2013
