Kunsthalle Düsseldorf
Düsseldorf, Germany

The Kun­sthalle, a con­crete block built in 1967, is one of the most con­cise build­ings in Düssel­dorf, a now rare ex­am­ple of raw ar­chi­tec­ture. Ar­chi­tects Beck­mann and Brock­es used pre­fab­ri­cat­ed blocks of con­crete, de­vel­oped in the 1950s for pure­ly eco­nom­ic rea­sons, and thus were faced with more than just a for­mal chal­lenge. This is the back­ground against which the Kun­sthalle’s ar­chi­tec­ture must be re­gard­ed to­day.

The Kunsthalle Düsseldorf is a place for the entire spectrum of international contemporary art and related contemporary discourses. This tradition has continued since its reopening in 2002 with innovative formats for exhibiting and communicating.

The wide range of exhibitions focusing on a variety of topics and periods. Furthermore, the exhibition series Seitenlichtsaal and the presentation of recipients of the Karl Schmidt-Rottluff Scholarship have featured and continue to showcase younger and less well-known artists.

Since Jan­uary 2010, Gre­gor Jansen has been di­rec­tor of the Kun­sthalle Düssel­dorf. Un­der his di­rec­tion, in­ter­na­tion­al cur­rents and Düssel­dorf po­si­tions, new tal­ents and “big” names will con­tin­ue to find their place in this out-of-the-or­di­nary venue.

To suggest the institution’s role in enabling such ambitions, they selected the name “Dia,” taken from the Greek word meaning “through.” (more…)

    Publication
    MACK
    International
    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
