Haus der Kunst

or literally House of Art is the first monumental Nazi building constructed in the 3rd Reich. It was opened in 1937 with the Great German Art Exhibition or Große Deutsche Kunstausstellung under the wings of Nazi propaganda. The Haus managed to transform into a modern, flamboyant and lively place for international and contemporary art. – It still does run the yearly sales show – since 1949 called Große Kunstausstellung or Great Art Exhibition for obvious reasons.

Siegmar Warnecke and Sonja Kröner are part of it this year with their installation sixdoors, which I shot in 2009. Watch some images:
