Haus der Kunst

Opened in 1937 in Munich, during the Nazi regime

Prinzregentenstraße 1, 80538 München, Germany

For more than 75 years, Haus der Kunst has undergone historic transformations. In 2012, the institution commemorated two important anniversaries — the 75th of its opening in 1937 under the Nazis and the 20th since the establishment of the private-public Stiftung Haus der Kunst München GmbH in 1992.

Haus der Kunst is a non-collecting public museum and a key global center for contemporary art. It is dedicated to the exploration of the diverse histories of contemporary art based on a foundation of focused exhibitions, research, and education.

Through its programs, Haus der Kunst affirms and acknowledges that the trajectories of contemporary art are global, multifocal, polysemic, and unbounded by cartographic, conceptual, and cultural limits.

Haus der Kunst sharpens this perspective of contemporary art by implicating many viewpoints, deploying multiple tools, and developing a critical context for the examination, articulation, illumination, and transmission of the historical dimension of contemporaneity. Haus der Kunst achieves this through a culturally relevant interdisciplinary program of the highest artistic merit.
