House of the Arts (Haus der Kunst) Tours

House of the Arts (Haus der Kunst)
The House of the Arts, or Haus der Kunst in German, is an art museum in Munich that was originally founded by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis in 1937. It originally housed Hitler's vision of what great German art was, and the exhibits were folk art displaying Nazi ideals. The museum's purpose has changed several times since the end of World War II, but since 2003 the museum has been dedicated almost exclusively to contemporary art. The Archive Gallery, the museum's permanent exhibition, displays art, photography, and other items that explore the museum's turbulent history. 

Other exhibitions in the museum come from contemporary artists whose works include painting, drawing, photography, video, installations and more. Aside from the exhibitions, the museum also focuses on education and research. The House of the Arts holds special events, kids' and youth programs, and tours. 

Practical Info

Paul's Private Tour: Third Gender in Bavaria

Paul's Private Tour: Third Gender in Bavaria

The third gender is not a theory and not a lifestyle. On the other side, religion and religious morality are theories, ideologies and yes, they are lifestyles. With this perspective, we walk through Munich and discuss LGBT-issues with society and also the Nazi-Era. It may be surprising that Islam already had homosexuals integrated into their history. The Catholics also have blessed knights and their fellows. So, what happened with society? "I would rather be a cold warrior than a warm brother," said Bavarian Prime Minister Franz Josef Strauß. Sad but true. Unfortunately, this says a lot about the history of the third gender in Bavaria. Prejudices came through belief, fear or politics and even with the difficult progress, we are far from the freedom that we enjoyed in our society 2000 years ago. In my tour of Munich, I talk about some issues related to the persecution and acceptance of homosexuals in Bavaria.
