Following the announcement of the “Kunst am Bau” competition in spring 2023, twelve artists submitted concepts that highlight the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung as a site of creative learning, interdisciplinary exchange and critical dialogue.
Since 2018, the Bauhaus-Archiv has been closed for renovation and expansion in accordance with landmark preservation guidelines. A key aspect of the construction efforts – and an integral element of building culture in Germany – is “Kunst am Bau” – a state and federal programme devoted to financing the creation of artworks as a part of publicly funded construction projects in Germany. To this end, the state of Berlin, represented by the Senate Department for Culture and Social Cohesion, the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, and the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung launched a non-public, single-stage art competition, preceded by a European-wide public application process.
On 26 September 2023 the winning concept has been announced!
The exhibition will showcase the winning design which received the recommendation for funding by the jury, along with the other eleven concepts submitted for consideration in the art competition.
The presentation reveals how very differently artists view and react to the architecture and usage of the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung.
The exhibition is on view at the temporary bauhaus-archiv from 25 October 2023 to 28 November 2023.
Booking: Entry is free. Registration is requested.
