Michael Fehr leads through the exhibition “The Tube. An Architecture for Conceivable Times”.
At the beginning of the 1980s, the architect and work consortium Günther L. Eckert developed an architectural utopia: a giant tube above ground that spanned the globe and was intended to provide living space for all of humanity. With a technically detailed design, Eckert wanted to prove that all of humanity can live prosperously on earth without further exploiting and destroying it. With the presentation of the “Tube”, the Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge opens up a space to think about the architecture of the future.
"The Tube. An Architecture for Conceivable Times" is the last presentation in the Kreuzberg museum rooms: On November 5, 2023, the museum will close its doors at Oranienstrasse 25 after 17 years.
"The Tube. An Architecture for Conceivable Times" was curated by Michael Fehr. A publication of the same name was published in German and English to accompany the presentation.
