The Kulturforum - on its way to completion?
Politicians, historians and architects will discuss on Tuesday, 24 November in Berlin. Christoph Ingenhoven will make an architectural statement.
After years of fruitless debate, two futile parliamentary resolutions and an equally failed master plan of the Chamber of Deputies, there is finally a breakthrough by the initiative of Culture Minister Monika Grütters and the Budget Committee of the German Bundestag, with the decision to build a Museum of Modern Art at the Potsdamer Straße and to start an architectural and urban planning competition. The following interlocutors will appreciate and discuss this moment of decision on 24 November at the Kulturforum in Berlin:
Andreas Geisel, Senator für Stadtentwicklung und Umwelt (Senator for Urban Development and Environment); Pfarrer Christhard-Georg Neubert, Stiftung St. Matthäus (Foundation St. Matthäus); Prof. Dr. Moritz Wullen, Kunstbibliothek, Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz (Art Library, Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation); Dr. Jan Stöß, Landesvorsitzender der SPD Berlin (Regional Chairman of SPD Berlin); Prof. Matthias Sauerbruch, Architect.
Welcome: Dr. Heinrich-W. Wörmann, SPD Tiergarten-Süd. The evening will be moderated by Thomas Isenberg, a member of the Chamber of Deputies.
Christoph Ingenhoven will lead the introduction by making an architectural historic statement for the Kulturform.
