Compared to other art genres, architecture has been a late addition to
institutional collections, where it began to feature in the last third
of the twentieth century. Architectural collections have now
established a firm place in the international cultural landscape. The
academic symposium “Architecture on Display” is being organised by the
Berlinische Galerie and the Institute of Art and Visual History at
Berlin’s Humboldt University. International experts representing
museums, academic research and contemporary architectural practice will
share current thinking and visions about the work they do. They will
focus on new trends in construction, strategies for collection, the
research agenda, and public education about architecture.

Eminent speakers at the symposium “Architecture on Display” will
consider how high standards in this work around architecture can be
upheld in the long term. The opening keynote, devoted to the history
and future of the German Museum of Architecture in Frankfurt am Main,
will be given by its deputy director Wolfgang Voigt on Thursday, 8 May
2014, starting at 6:15 pm, at the Humboldt University in Berlin. On the
following day, museum directors and curators from Germany and across
Europe will meet at the Berlinische Galerie to discuss the scope and
direction of the collections and exhibitions undertaken by their
institutions and the issues they currently face. Examples will serve to
illustrate the decision-making process surrounding acquisitions, and
the importance of coordination between institutions will be underlined.
A third cluster of presentations will address the increasing
digitalisation of planning processes and present-day phenomena such as
the transitional use of urban space and projects for temporary
architecture. These new trends confront collectors and curators with
questions about the significance of originals and appropriate ways of
documenting innovative professional practice, planning instruments and
action models in the museum environment.

The conference languages will be German and English. There is no charge
for attending either session.
