Nikolaj Kunsthal

Nikolaj Kunsthal presents experimental international contemporary art in unique surroundings right in the heart of Copenhagen.

Nikolaj, Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, is located in the former Nikolaj Church at Nikolaj Plads in the centre of Copenhagen and functions as the city's exhibition space for contemporary art.

The church is one of the oldest churches in the city, yet it does not function as a church anymore. Outside, you will see a sign saying 'I'm not a church' while the inside is full of create art and performance.

7-9 annual Danish and international exhibitions are presented, allowing the visitors to acquaint themselves with mainly experimental and innovative art. One of the annual exhibitions is a children's exhibition, and one is a major presentation of an older artist whose work has had a pioneering impact on today's art.
