History at Historical Sites

In cooperation with the Munich Documentation Center for the History of National Socialism

With the “House of German Art” and the party buildings located on Königsplatz (1933/1937), the first architectural showpiece projects of Nazi propaganda were created. These buildings by Paul Ludwig Troost are still closely linked with Munich’s special role as a National Socialist art metropolis, as the center of the NSDAP’s party apparatus and as a place of the party as a cult.

As part of the workshop, the two sites will be visited, and their histories illuminated. After this, their former function as propaganda instruments will be discussed, as will their architectural conception and the history of their use in the decades after 1945. What role do the built testimonies of the Nazi regime play in our examination of this historical legacy? debate? What projects have been and are being developed and realized because of the long-term and active processing of the past? And how should we deal with it in the future?
