How will the old section of the Kunstgebäude in Stuttgart be utilized in the future?
Against the backdrop of this public discussion, six local institutions—Akademie Schloss Solitude, ifa – Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, Schauspiel Stuttgart, Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart, Theater Rampe, Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart—have drafted a utilization concept for the years 2017–2018. While the State of Baden-Württemberg is considering future developments for 2019 and beyond, the task force is filling the Kunstgebäude with a transdisciplinary program aligned to thematic principles.
This program has been voluntarily conceptualized by the aforementioned organizations, either all together or in various constellations, and implemented by a production team. The projects are financially supported by the State Ministry for Science, Research and Art of Baden-Württemberg.
A focus here is placed on experimentation with new formats which are situated between exhibition and performative projects, art and theory, participation and debate, and which adopt a perspective that is global and local in equal measure.
