Blue-Chip Artists Transform the Bundeskunsthalle Into a Fantastical Playground
This summer, the Bundeskunsthalle is all about fun. The Bonn, Germany, museum otherwise known as Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland has mounted two exhibitions centered on play. “The Playground Project Indoor” explores the concept through photographs, models, plans, and films from the mid 20th century. “The Playground Project Outdoor” is more physically interactive: Slides, swings, and enormous white Lego sculptures by the likes of Ólafur Elíasson, Carsten Höller, and Superflex are set up for museum-goer use on the 2-acre landscaped roof garden as well as in the square in front of the institution. Both shows are up through October 28.
