Since the completion of the building in year 2000, the studios of Kunsthaus Kannen are used intensively and are an essential part of the art-house. The artists and inhabitants of all sectors of the Alexianer hospital have the opportunity to support and experience their abilities. Intensively working artists, who come several times a week outside of group therapy sessions, have their own working-space which is arranged and designed by themselves. Throughout the space of 150 square meters, the studio offers more than 20 working places with 3 painting and drawing studios as well as a workshop for wood- and clay-works. With the support of our art therapist, both mentally disabled and mentally ill people find their way to express and fulfil themselves. The artists have the opportunity to get to know other studios, artists and workshops, as well as to exchange experiences and develop projects together.
