Musing on Museology

July 2012

Okwui Enwezor at the Haus der Kunst
Having to accept the museum’s start as an institute representative of the Nazi regime is one thing, but today’s director of the Haus der Kunst in Munich would prefer not to let this unseemly fact undermine the importance of the contemporary art centre that it is today. Taking a noble stance on the value of the museum in 21st century society and with high hopes for the direction that he aims to pursue, Okwui Enwezor shares his profound and astute reasoning as to the meaning of Haus der Kunst and reveals just what its mission actually is.
