Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn, DE

30.04. – 31.10.2023

  • The Bundeskunsthalle organizes a summer program of interactions, play, and visual and acoustic impulses around the building, complementing the existing artworks in the outdoor space: the Circular Appearing Rooms water pavilion by Jeppe Hein, which presents itself in the square every summer; the Bonn Slide by Carsten Höller, which winds around its own axis up the facade; and The Curve by Bettina Pousttchi, which is also dedicated to movement. All three are very gratefully used as participatory offerings by a broad audience and open up new moments of their own perception.

    With the „Interactions“ various places of the public space of the Bundeskunsthalle will be occupied – partly also until autumn: From the roof to the foyer and the forum to the inner courtyard and the forecourt, selected artworks or performances will be offered that invite to interactive play, but also deal with visual languages, dance and movement as a cross-border and universal form of communication. Interactions, interventions, also possible irritations shall give the visitors the possibility to participate in the art in a playful way. It is understood as an open offer that serves both the individual and the collective experience – a togetherness in which roles are questioned, openness, tolerance and sensitivity are promoted.The invited artists are interested in a social art practice that offers extended experiences, also to reduce a possible distance to art and within a society.
