Haus der Kunst, München

Munich, Germany

 

«The building was constructed from 1934 to 1937 (…) as the Third Reich's first monumental propaganda building. The museum, then called Haus der deutschen Kunst (House of German Art), was opened in March 1937 as a showcase for what the Third Reich regarded as Germany's finest art.» — Wikipedia

 

Today, Haus der Kunst is devoted to contemporary art – I went to see Gerhard Richter's abstract paintings and the William Eggleston exhibition (created in cooperation with the Whitney museum in New York).
