HOW BERLIN INSPIRES US

Berlin’s incredi­ble array of cul­tu­ral activi­ties also con­ti­nues to pro­vi­de the Artprojekt team with new inspi­ra­ti­on for crea­ting extra­or­di­na­ry modern archi­tec­tu­re of supe­ri­or qua­li­ty. Invol­ving con­tem­pora­ry artists from the start of each pro­jects plan­ning pro­cess is one of the inte­gral ele­ments of our group’s own cul­tu­re. This is how we keep our fin­ger on the pul­se of new move­ments, deve­lop­ments, and trends at the thres­hold bet­ween tra­di­ti­on and moder­ni­ty. After all, there’s a rea­son why our name starts with art!

  • The orga­ni­sers, initia­tors and mem­bers of the Artprojekt con­sor­ti­um were able to give a very posi­ti­ve review of the Art + Archi­tec­tu­re Wee­kend event which took place from 29 April to 1 May 2016. Pro­mi­nent rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ves from the worlds of art, archi­tec­tu­re, poli­tics and the media, both from Ger­ma­ny and abroad, keen­ly accep­ted the invi­ta­ti­on to come to Ber­lin to dis­cuss cur­rent the­mes, trends and deve­lop­ments in a loca­ti­on whe­re con­tem­pora­ry archi­tec­tu­re, a young and expe­ri­men­tal artis­tic sce­ne, and inter­na­tio­nal­ly acc­lai­med art all con­ver­ge. The Art Salon event drew on the tra­di­ti­ons of the Ber­lin salon cul­tu­re and crea­ted a plat­form that enab­led over 300 guests who eit­her prac­tice or are inte­rested in art and archi­tec­tu­re to meet and exchan­ge infor­ma­ti­on and ide­as.

  • Art + Archi­tec­tu­re | Wee­kend Ber­lin 2015
  • $100mon­th­ly
  • Our 2015 event once again fea­tured a mix of con­tem­pora­ry archi­tec­tu­re; the young, expe­ri­men­tal cul­tu­ral sce­ne; and artists reco­gni­zed around the world. It focu­sed in par­ti­cu­lar on artis­tic methods of desi­gning attrac­tive con­struc­tion sites and embed­ding them in modern set­tings based on cutting-edge tech­no­lo­gies and app­li­ca­ti­ons. Inspi­red by the salon cul­tu­re of 1920s Ber­lin, many young artists took the oppor­tu­ni­ty to explo­re the sub­ject of dia­log in the con­text of art.

  • $100mon­th­ly
  • The 2014 edi­ti­on of “Art + Archi­tec­tu­re | Wee­kend Ber­lin” was devo­ted ent­i­re­ly to star archi­tect Sir David Chip­per­field, who­se designs inclu­de the Fig­ge Art Muse­um in Daven­port and the award-winning River and Rowing Muse­um in Henley-on-Thames. In Ber­lin, Chip­per­field has been com­mis­sio­ned to deve­lop a  com­pre­hen­si­ve plan for the Muse­ums­in­sel and the recon­struc­tion of the Neu­es Muse­um. Having alre­ady col­la­bo­ra­ted with this visio­na­ry archi­tect on Palais Varn­ha­gen, this was more than enough rea­son for Artprojekt to give its select audi­ence a clo­ser look at Chipperfield’s work.
