BAUEN UND ZEIGEN

BAUEN UND ZEIGEN

From the Kunsthalle Karlsruhe, Past and Present

5 June – 21 September 2014

For the first time in its history, the Kunsthalle (founded 1837, opened 1846) is about to become the subject of one of its own exhibitions: BAUEN UND ZEIGEN turns the spotlight on the complex 168-year-old history of the Kunsthalle, its buildings and the collections housed therein. The successive creation of the main building’s four-winged design, the grandeur of the original interiors, the changing state of the collection displays over the decades, and the often overlooked display furniture (such as historical pedestals, socles, and cabinets) will all be brought to life through reconstructions, photographs (old and new), models, magnificent coloured drawings, and architectural plans. BAUEN UND ZEIGEN presents an insight into the history of an institution in constant flux.
