This house is crumbling and crumbling at every turn. We are eagerly awaiting retreading. There are also considerable problems, such as 'outsourcing', 'Scientology' and, of course, the eternal question of proper funding. A clever artistic director (m/f/d) is conspicuously absent. The exhibitions often seem random, confused and unconceptual... But: There are always outstanding treats that make going there worthwhile.
Weshalb will das Haus der Kunst das Aufsichtspersonal ersetzen durch fremde billigere Security von einer Firma. Werden diese geschult für diese Betreuungsaufgabe? more »Why does the House of Art want to replace the supervisory staff with foreign cheaper security from a company. Are they trained for this care task?
I visited the exhibition about African artist El Anatsui at this museum. The whole presentation of his works was amazing. They were very well presented and amended with a lot of details.
Very interesting work on several material... The exhibition place is huge but friendly with a nice bar on the back...
