Haus der Kunst (House of Art)

Haus der Kunst (House of Art) Review

This colonnaded, classical-style building is one of Munich's most significant examples of Hitler-era architecture, and was officially opened as Haus der deustchen Kunst (House of German Art) by the Führer himself. During the Third Reich it showed only work deemed to reflect the Nazi aesthetic. One of its most successful postwar exhibitions was devoted to works banned by the Nazis. It now hosts cutting-edge exhibitions on art, photography, and sculpture, as well as theatrical and musical happenings. After the departure to London's prestigious Tate Modern in October 2011 of the gallery's hugely successful director Chris Derkon, Nigerian-born (formerly U.S.-based) Okwui Enwezor has made a good start. The survival-of-the-chicest disco, P1, is in the building's west wing.
