High Art Flat Land - The Kunsthalle Rostock / Hohe Kunst aufs platte Land - Die Kunsthalle Rostock

German


Both a prestigious political project and a place for exhibitions of abstract art critical of the system – the turbulent history of the Rostock Art Hall.
The Art Hall in Rostock was a political hot potato from the moment it was founded. The decision to build a new art museum was made at the highest level of the East German Council of Ministers in 1964, and it opened five years later. Planned as a representative space for contemporary art, it was hoped it would help East Germany break out of its international isolation. As a result, abstract art that was officially rejected by the authorities was regularly shown here as part of the Baltic Biennales. The Art Hall developed into a crowd puller, but remained politically contested behind the scenes. The fall of the Berlin Wall opened up new perspectives and created new problems … The film uses interviews and archival material to examine the fifty years of the Art Hall, while reflecting upon the political power of art and presenting the challenges of running a modern museum.
