Since the completion of the building in year 2000, the studios of Kunsthaus Kannen are used intensively and appear as an important part of the art-house. The artists and inhabitants of all sectors of the Alexianer hospital have the opportunity to live up and support their abilities. Intensively working artists, who are coming several times a week apart from the atelier-groups, have their own working-space which is arranged and designed by their own. On 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. Under the special support of our art-therapists both mentally disapled and mentally ill people find their way to unfold and fulfil themselves. Throughout getting to know other studios, artists and workshops, the artists have the opportunity to exchange experiences as well as to arrange and develop projects together.
