Free admission, Monday – Friday from 9 am to 6 pm
The latest round of jury meetings on 7 and 8 August 2018 for the Kunst am Bau (“percent for art”) competitions for two major foyers in the Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss came to a decision on all the locations where art is to be incorporated into the building. The prize-winning contributions to the competition will be shown in an exhibition.
Artists were tasked with creating concepts for the foyer on the ground floor, which functions as an entrance hall for the two large event halls in the north-western corner of the building, and the foyer on the first floor, which will be situated between the Berlin Exhibition and the Academy work rooms. The Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BRR) has launched a total of four Kunst am Bau competitions for the Humboldt Forum.
The prize-winning contributions to the competition will be shown in an exhibition at the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BRR).
For the foyer on the ground floor, artist duo Dellbrügge & de Moll (Christiane Dellbrügge and Ralf de Moll, Berlin) received first prize for their work titled Die Architekten. The jury, chaired by Dr Barbara Steiner, head of the Kunsthaus Graz, unanimously recommended that the work be realized with a Kunst am Bau budget totalling 150,000 euro.
Stuttgart artist Martin Bruno Schmid also won first prize for his work Fond (Goldgrund). Third prize went to Berlin artists Dolores Zinny and Juan Maidagan for their work Horizont. Wall areas in the foyer have been designated for the Kunst am Bau works, for which the artists were asked to address the history of the site.
The admission is free.
Monday – Friday from 9 am to 6 pm.
The exhibition is shown in the foyer of the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning
Designed by Italian architect Franco Stella, the Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss is a unique and vibrant location for encountering the world’s cultures. The three Baroque palace facades overlooking the Lustgarten, Schlossfreiheit and Schlossplatz are currently being reconstructed. But facing east towards the Spree, the Humboldt Forum presents an uncompromisingly contemporary aspect. The three Baroque facades in the Schlüter Courtyard are also being rebuilt. Here, too, the fourth facade will be modern in design.
