Opening of the BlackBox
With the BlackBox, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung will open an additional location in the north of Munich in November 2021. Located on the first floor of the building completed in 2020 in the heart of the still young Parkstadt Schwabing, the spacious rooms of the BlackBox will in future offer opportunities to show large-format photographs and room-filling installations from the foundation’s collection. The multifunctional space, which is also integrated into the BlackBox, also offers opportunities for various event formats such as lectures and artist talks, symposia and workshops.
The building was designed by raumstation Architekten and sets an architectural exclamation mark in the north of Parkstadt. The architectural firm, which is based south of Munich, won a competition with its design, which refers to the clear styles of the early 20th century. Decisive factors in the jury’s decision included the excellent organization of the various functional aspects in the building, the elegance of the articulated façade tectonics and the coloring, which powerfully sets the building apart from its surroundings. The dark gray to black cast stone facade, with its black quartz inclusions sparkling mystically in the sunlight, inspired the foundation to name the new space “BlackBox.” The design of the interior picks up on the clear forms of the architecture and was executed by Munich-based interior designer Sven Hedrich. The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung’s already familiar location at Karl-Theodor-Str. 27 will operate under the name “Villa” in the future.
