In the last few years, spectacular new museum buildings with increasingly large exhibition spaces and extravagant architecture have repeatedly been a matter of public interest. Structurally innovative architecture often creates landmarks, increasing the cultural location factor of a city as well as the visitor numbers. However, how can we find a balance between this interest in attractive buildings and the demands of the museum’s exhibition practice? How does architecture create atmosphere and in which ways does it define exhibitions and art education programmes? And do these new architectural spaces change contemporary art? How do the exhibited art works reflect these new spaces?
The Nationalgalerie—Hamburger Bahnhof (Museum of Contemporary Art) has invited different people of the art world to present their viewpoints on these questions in a panel discussion.
