🌇 “When we built the future!” – Big Beautiful Buildings is a quite surprising take on the European Year of Cultural Heritage by TU Dortmund and StadtBauKultur NRW. Take a look! https://bigbeautifulbuildings.de/en/
This #urbanana idea had a very unflamboyant look: the unusual concept was described in a matter-of-fact way on just two pages, in 11pt Times New Roman font. How about linking together works of art in the sacred halls of the museums with their histories in the urban area, and in so doing, strip away part of the invisible walls between the temples of art and their profane surroundings? From the Wallraf-Richartz Museum, tours with the Musity app, which is currently being planned, follow in the footsteps of the Holy Ursula - and take you to a nightcap in the cosy King Georg bar or to the Cologne masters in the Medieval “rue de peintres” - as well as to the Peek & Cloppenburg clothing store. It is this unpretentious, but appreciative approach, combined with the (real) dissertation-like depth of knowledge about the trio of communication, city and art that persuaded the jury to give the project a chance of being realised by presenting the #urbanana award. A special exhibition opening-like round of applause please for Anna Döbbelin!
