Fodor's 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 Deutschen Kunst (House of German Art) by the Führer himself. During the Third Reich it only showed work deemed to reflect the Nazi aesthetic. One of its most successful postwar exhibitions was devoted to works banned by the Nazis. Haus der Kunst now hosts cutting-edge exhibitions on art, photography, and sculpture, as well as theatrical and musical happenings under the direction of Nigerian-born (formerly U.S.-based) Okwui Enwezor. The survival-of-the-chicest disco, P1, is in the building's west wing.
