Under Construction - EU Kunsthalle
1 – 31 March 2006
In March 2006, the European Kunsthalle held Under Construction, a series of events that took place each day at different cultural locations in Cologne. Current issues on location advantages, financing models, and trends in contemporary art and its presentation in art institutions formed the thematic background for the events. The event was based on individual lectures by international speakers, who offered a wide variety of different scholarly and practical perspectives on the explored topics. This was rounded out by a focus on cultural policy today and the development of alternative concepts – panel discussions, as well as smaller talk shows formed the communicative setting for these debates. The goal behind Under Construction was to bring together representatives of different disciplines and render the process of defining the parameters for a new European Kunsthalle accessible to the broader general public.
The publication Under Construction. Perspectives on Institutional Practice documents many aspects of the event, and was presented in September at Buchhandlung Walther König in Cologne.
