Culture at its finest: Deichtorhallen Hamburg to present “Elbphilharmonie Revisited”
Hamburg is packed with cultural highlights: the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg was officially opened on 11 and 12 January 2017 to great celebration and now forms the new heart of Hamburg, the music hub in Northern Germany. And from 10 February 2017, the Deichtorhallen Hamburg will be presenting their exhibition “Elbphilharmonie Revisited”, with renowned international artists engaging in their relationship with architecture in general and the Elbphilharmonie building in particular.
The Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is completed and was officially opened with a grand festive event on 11 and 12 January 2017. Designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron and situated prominently between the city centre and the port, the new concert hall consists of the historic Kaispeicher A warehouse building and a new superimposed glass structure with a curved roof landscape. In addition to three concert halls that will be hosting a highly diverse music programme, the building houses a hotel and a publicly accessible viewing platform that highlights the nature of the Elbphilharmonie as a “house for everyone”.
Taking place from 10 February to 1 May 2017, “Elbphilharmonie Revisited” at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg is a collaboration with HamburgMusik gGmbH and is supported by Hamburg’s Ministry of Culture. Twelve renowned international artists will be presenting their works engaging in their relationship with architecture at large and Herzog & de Meuron’s Elbphliharmonie structure in particular, and most of the works have been created just for the purpose of this exhibition. The works on display span a wide spectrum of media, ranging from photography and large-scale installations to sculptures and films.
“Elbphilharmonie Revisited” encourages visitors to reflect on the wide-ranging discourse between architecture and fine art in a variety of ways and aims to inspire people to perceive the Elbphilharmonie in an entirely new light as an architectural, musical, and socio-political sphere. www.deichtorhallen.de/
