Open project room and meeting place

Table of Contents

On 4 September 2020, the MK&G inaugurated an open space in the heart of the building known as the "Freiraum". The new meeting place, project space and lounge for visitors, neighbours, travellers and museum staff is accessible free of charge during MK&G opening hours, offers a place where people can linger, work or speak with others. MK&G is thus putting the social function of the museum – as a place for encounters, discourse or simply taking a break from the daily routine – front and centre in its work. The "Freiraum" will respond dynamically and flexibly to the needs of its users and to current issues in urban society. Its programme will also be planned in constant dialogue with the museum’s collection and exhibitions, which will be discussed in the forum provided by the project space and hence enriched by new perspectives. Hosts Nina Lucia Groß and Tilman Walther liaise with the city’s stakeholders and communities to develop temporary ways to activate and use the space through diverse offerings. The furnishings, devised by the design and architecture collective ConstructLab, will also change depending on their users.
