Opening of the BlackBox
An Additional New Location for the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung
With the BlackBox, the Alexander-Tutsek Stiftung will open an additional location in the north of Munich in November 2021. Located on the ground floor of a building completed in 2020 in the heart of the still young Parkstadt Schwabing, the spacious rooms of the BlackBox offer opportunities to show large-format photographs and room-filling installations from the foundation’s collection.

The multifunctional room, which is also integrated in the BlackBox, offers options for various event formats such as lectures and artist talks, symposia and workshops. The exhibition rooms open to a garden with sculptures from the collection, inviting visitors to linger.

The building was designed by raumstation Architekten and sets an architectural exclamation mark in the Parkstadt Schwabing. With the design language of the building, which refers to the clear styles of the beginning of the 20th century, the architecture office from the south of Munich had won an architectural competition. The decisive factors for the jury’s decision were, among other things, the excellent organization of the various functional aspects in the house, the elegance of the structured facade tectonics and the coloring that sets the building apart from its surroundings. The dark gray to black artificial stone facade, whose black quartz inclusions sparkle mystically in the sunlight, inspired the foundation to name the new space “BlackBox”. The interior design takes up the clear forms of the architecture and was realized by the Munich based interior designer Sven Hedrich. The already known location of the Alexander Tutsek Stiftung in Karl-Theodor-Str. 27 will henceforth operate under the name “Villa”.
