NEXTEX is an exhibition and event space, a think-tank, an office for planning, a workshop room, a cultural hub, a bar … NEXTEX presents contemporary artists and art projects, putting them up for discussion.
NEXTEX is a cooperative partner for art projects, a centre for information on matters concerning contemporary visual art and the regional and supraregional activities of artists. NEXTEX is a project of visarte.ost, the visual artists’ professional association.
NEXTEX began as «projektraum exex» in the former shop room of ex libris, continued its experimentation as «NEXTEX» on Blumenbergplatz in the former school lounge of the Technical School, reutilised the historical rooms of the Haus zum Pelikan in Schmiedgasse and now resides once again at Blumenbergplatz 3 on the first floor. Nowadays the core of the Nextex activities take place in the former Italian consulate at Frongartenstrasse 9.
