Art in Architecture Competition: Humboldt Form in the Berlin Palace, Germany.
Art design by: Marjan Laaper
The German Bundestag decided that the former Berlin Palace
would be reconstructed as the Humboldt Forum, a centre of cultural encounter.
In 2017 a competition was held to develop artistic interventions for the
staircases above portals 1 and 5 at the Schluter courtyard. The
design should deal thematically with the architecture, the history of the site
and make a reference to the Humboldt's ideas.
Artist: Marjan Laaper
Title of the Artwork: "The Anthropocene, stages of metamorphosis"
