The Arts and the City - Ways to a Berliner Kunsthalle. Typologies of innovative art centres in Europe.
International Symposium: 22./ 23. June 2009
Workshops, Lectures, Public Talk and Exhibition
Temporäre Kunsthalle, Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung
Taking its starting point in the inspiring situation of the promised foundation of a Berliner Kunsthalle, "The Arts and the City" aims to direct attention to leading European culture metropolises which in the last years originated contemporary art centres featuring innovative forms of presentation, production and participation. The discussion
about tasks and potentials of a Kunsthalle of a new type, of the future central stage for contemporary arts in Berlin, will be based on the concrete experiences of those international institutions.
22. / 23. June 2009
> Art metropolises in comparison: which functions do contemporary art centers have? Is Berlin up to date?
> A rehearsal stage for trans disciplinary production: institution as a laboratory?
> Between critical realism and utopic inclusion: the recipient as co-producer?
> Architecture for the arts: from the cathedral to the agora?
> The arts and the city: local involvement and international networking?
> Contemporary art as an instigator of a new type of public debate?
> What kind of Kunsthalle does Berlin need?
