Director of the Haus der Kunst Okwui Enwezor has written an article in Saturday’s Süddeutsche Zeitung on the restoration plans for the building. He points out that since World War II all exhibitions have acknowledged or even counteracted the building’s raison d'être and is adamant that it should be the institution’s programme, rather than the building itself that confronts the legacy of its Nazi-era construction. He is interested in repositioning the museum and transforming it into a contemporary institution while maintaining a serious rapport with its historical memory.
