CISTERNERNE – UNDERGROUND ART SPACE

Scroll down to content

The Cisterns is Copenhagen’s old water reservoir, which today serves as an underground exhibition space for contemporary art. It is one of Copenhagen’s most atmospheric venues, and with its experimental exhibitions and raw architecture, the Cisterns is a must-see.

The exhibitions are based on the special architecture of the place, natural light and climate, and therefore the museum is closed during winter. The next exhibition opens March 15, 2020 with Tomás Saracenos ‘Event Horizon’.

The old water reservoir is Denmark’s only dripstone cave, with natural formation of stalactites and stalagmites in the concrete structures. The Cisterns are located under Frederiksberg Hill in Søndermarken Park, where two glass pyramids with stairs descend down to the exhibition space.

Cisternerne er Københavns gamle vandreservoir som i dag fungerer som underjordisk kunsthal for samtidskunst. Det er et af Københavns mest stemningsfulde venues, og med sine eksperimentelle udstillinger i rå lokaler er Cisternerne et must-see.

Udstillingerne tager udgangspunkt i stedets helt særlige arkitektur, naturlige lys og klima, og derfor holder museet vinterlukket i de mørke måneder. Næste udstilling åbner 15 marts 2020 med Tomás Saracenos ‘Event Horizon’.

Den gamle vandreservoir er Danmarks eneste drypstenshule, med naturlige stalaktitter og stalagmitter i betonstrukturerne. Du finder Cisternerne under Søndermarken, hvor to glaspyramider med trappenedgange fører ned i kunsthallen.
