Haus Der Kunst München

The Haus der Kunst (House of Art) is an important art museum in Munich, Germany. It is located at Prinzregentenstrasse 1 at the southern edge of the Englischer Garten, Munich's largest park.

The building was constructed from 1934 to 1937 following plans of architect Paul Ludwig Troost as the Third Reich's first monumental propaganda building. The museum, then called "Haus der deutschen Kunst" (House of German Art), was opened in March 1937, showing the Entartete Kunst exhibition, and was subsequently used as a showcase for what the Third Reich regarded as Germany's finest art.

After the end of World War II, the museum building was first used by the American occupation forces as an officer's mess; in that time, the building came to be known as the "P1", an abbreviation of its street address. The building's original purpose can still be seen in such guises as the swastika-motif mosaics in the ceiling panels of its front portico.

Beginning in 1946, the museum rooms, now partitioned into several smaller exhibition areas, started to be used as temporary exhibition space for trade shows and visiting art exhibitions. Some parts of the museum were also used to showcase works from those of Munich's art galleries that had been destroyed during the war. In 2002 the National Collection of Modern and Contemporary Arts moved into the Pinakothek der Moderne. Today, while housing no permanent art exhibition of its own, the museum is extensively used as a showcase building for temporary exhibitions and for visiting exhibits. Among many others, the Haus der Kunst has housed the Tutankhamun and the Zeit der Staufer exhibits. [ Read all ]

The London-based artist Anish Kapoor has created a new work for this exhibition. It is a deep red, wax-like block, the movement of which, along a track stretching through the entire length of several galleries of the building, is barely perceptible. He has named it Svayambhu(v), a Sanskrit word meaning “self-generated
