Kunstlabor Munich

About the project

With the opening of the KUNSTLABOR, the Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) reveals one of the largest art projects in Munich.

In the absence of the public and hidden behind the façade of the former Tengelmann headquarters in Landsbergerstrasse 350, artists of urban and contemporary art have been working for several months on their individual „spatial experiments“. The numerous relics of the former office complex serve as inspiration and backdrop for their works; mouse-grey wallpapers became canvases, files turned into sculptures, and office cabinets into installations – spray painted, drawn, hammered and artistically realized on several floors.

With the friendly support of AXA IM – Real Assets and the real estate developer FOM Real Estate, who had presented the project to the Munich based Urban Art Museum MUCA before the planned conversion, the KUNSTLABOR was created over many months.
