/ Visitor Information

ALIEN Art Centre is an art field that attaches great importance to the "meaning of aesthetics" and "future development", while insisting the original intention of "Sowed In Art - Germinated In Truth".



Founded on November 28, 2018, the Centre was formerly known as Kin-Ma Military Hostel, the temporary residence of the non-commissioned soldiers and officers who were selected to go to Kinmen or Mazu. The soldiers departing for Kinmen stayed in Kin-Ma Military Hostel in Kaohsiung; the ones departing for Mazu stayed in Kin-Ma Military Hostel in Keelung, which accounted for the origin of the name of the building “Kin-Ma”. Over time, the Keelung Kin-Ma Military Hostel has been demolished, and today, the one in Kaohsiung has become the only relic of the Cold War in Taiwan.
The Kin-Ma Military Hostel was abandoned for several years after the government units were evacuated. ALIEN Art took over the construction and operation of the building in 2016. The layout of column array, corridors and tree planting were used to capture the flow of light and wind.



ALIEN Art Centre is run by ALIEN Art, who believes that art is a feast of "visual creation", "localities" and "architectural space". The ALIEN Art provides planning of exhibition content for contemporary art and applied art, reflecting the issues and viewpoints of Taiwan and even the international level, buttressed with the vision to bring de vivre through supporting artists’ creation.
