INTERACTIVE Walking tour: art after 1945

What’s art doing—to the museum?

In which ways is a museum an audacious undertaking? And what would a genuinely crazy museum look like? During this interactive walking tour of the exhibition of art created after 1945 from the Lenbachhaus’s collections, we will learn more about what a museum actually does while also exploring our own visions of a fantastical and utopian museum.

The artist Hans-Peter Feldmann’s Store 1975–2015 and the SPUR-Bau envisioned by the (artists’) group SPUR will inspire the students to create novel settings for art. Seeing works of contemporary art and talking about them will initiate an imaginative and creative process in which their forward-looking ideas will be translated into a shared artistic project. Making collages or three-dimensional assemblages, the students will try their hands at art, curating, or architecture and become experts in their own new museum. Presenting their designs will foster their ability to engage in a critical and reflective examination of creative endeavors—their own as well as their fellow students’.
