On Friday 16th September Haus der Kunst in Munich will host a conversation between David Chipperfield and museum director Okwui Enwezor. The talk forms part of a series of public conversations being hosted by Haus der Kunst on the state of the museum as a cultural and social conductor in today’s global culture. The topic of the conversation will be 'Renovate/Innovate' and will look at issues surrounding the design and renovation of landmark buildings, the civic function of museums in the contemporary public sphere and the role of art institutions as spaces of creativity and production of cultural capital. In 2013 David Chipperfield Architects was commissioned to lead an extensive renovation of Haus der Kunst, and the series of talks marks the beginning of this process.
