GROPIUS BAU. A NEW EXPERIENCE – OPEN HOUSE
23 to 24 March 2019
Celebrate with us the public opening of the newly conceived building: a new commission by Chiharu Shiota in the atrium will, as part of the new vision, be freely accessible to the public, the new restaurant Beba and the redesigned Walther König Bookshop will also be open. Coinciding with the opening of the exhibition And Berlin Will Always Need You. Art, Craft and Concept Made in Berlin on the evening of 21 March, the weekend marks the debut of a day-ticket scheme that allows all of the Gropius Bau shows and events to be explored in a single visit.
There will be various events taking place on Saturday 23 March and Sunday 24 March: guided tours, workshops, performances, a talk by artist in residence Otobong Nkanga and an exhibition of artist books curated by the Walther König Bookshop. A coordinated events programme responds to the exhibitions and activates the restaurant, bookshop and foyer as spaces for conversation and discussion, opening up the institution as a dynamic space and a place for communal gatherings with regularly scheduled events.
'Opening up the building and revealing its spaces in their original, light-flooded form has been very important to me during my first year at the Gropius Bau. Now we are opening the heart of the building to the public, the stunning atrium. We are inviting everyone to visit this central space free of charge, to see art, to spend time in conversation and exchange here or to simply discover the building in its intricate beauty.'
— Stephanie Rosenthal
The entire programme will be announced shortly.
