Extra City is a Kunsthal that finds inspiration in the city for depicting different visions of our future, by encouraging new links between contemporary (inter)national art, artists, researchers, and citizens.
Kunsthal Extra City departs from the city and connects back to it. We focus on urban reality in all its facets as central to the challenges of the 21st century.
Kunsthal Extra City works with art that breathes the spirit of our time. This art is often complex and challenging, but in its concern for the city, is open for any curious visitor.

On 8 September 2017, Kunsthal Extra City reopens with ‘Extra-Citizen – a prologue’.
How do we make a city our own? When can we say we belong to a place? How much have the informal meaning and legal definition of the notion of citizenship transformed over the last decades?
‘Extra-Citizen – a prologue’ is an exhibition and a discursive program that investigates processes, behaviours and strategies of citizenship, in cities that need to adapt to the diversity of their present and future inhabitants. ‘Extra-Citizen – a prologue’ looks into a concept in transition, one that exists in a liminal space between democracy, legality, sense of affiliation and survival.
