Our metropolises are in constant change and it can happen that you’ll find a bubble tea shop where your favorite pizza place used to be or they build a mall right next to your appartment and your panoramic view is suddenly gone.
The impact of art and culture on cities and their architecture is an interesting topic that the exhibition Culture:City explores. Does the social, cultural and architectural rootedness in the city work and does this lead to new forms of cultural production? Or does the construction project merely represent a symbol strong on marketing, yet another island in a city’s public spaces characterised by increasing fragmentation? Culture:City is working around these topics, displaying a selection of international examples – ranging from spectacular architectural and art projects, the creative reuse of empty buildings and city areas, through to citizens’ initiatives. Next to plans and models, the exhibition also offers its visitors a special insight: video tours complete with commentary as well as in-depth background information on tablet computers, lectures, film screenings, concerts, sound installations and conferences. It is up to you to decide if the architectural integration is a succeeds or not.
