In a tensional relationship to the Museum Island and all previous and future uses of the Schlossplatz, it represents contemporariness in the center of Berlin. The architecture by Adolf Krischanitz is grasped as a "projection screen" from the inside and outside, on which artistic designs are shown to a broad public. The "white cube" defines a place presenting itself free of architectural or urbanistic contexts. This freedom is used to display art in view of the future of Berlin's center.<br /><br />The Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin is a private initiative. After the two years on Schlossplatz, it will show art at new, internationally significant venues.</p> Fri, 22 Oct 2010 23:41:50 +0000
