Event overview

The focus of the workshop is the aesthetic appearance and functional significance of architecture under National Socialism, as well as the future examination of the built testimonies of the Nazi party as sites of contemporary culture.

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

As part of the workshop, the two locations, Königsplatz and Haus der Kunst, will be visited and their history explained at their historical locations. Afterwards, the former function of the Königsplatz and the “House of German Art” as propaganda instruments will be discussed, as will their architectural conception and the history of their use in the decades following 1945. What role do the built legacies of the Nazi regime play in our examination of our historical legacy? What projects have been developed and realized as a result of the many years of active examination of our own burdened past, and how should we deal with these issues in the future?

With Thomas Rink, Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism, and Sabine Brantl, Haus der Kunst.

The workshop will take place at the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism, Max-Mannheimer-Platz 1 and at Haus der Kunst, Prinzregentenstraße 1.

Meeting point: The Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism, Max-Mannheimer-Platz 1
