Daniel González – Humboldt Forum

Daniel González, dettaglio del fregio per foyer Humboldt Forum, Berlino, 2018

The Argentine artist Daniel González is among the finalists of the competition for the realization of a site-specific work for the foyer of the Humboldt Forum – Berlin Castle, currently under construction.
The work designed by Daniel González is a frieze of connection between the baroque past of the Palace, as the seat of the Hohenzollern dynasty and its projection towards the present and the future as a center of confrontation, of curiosity production and as a cultural home at the basis of the Humboldt Forum.
The frieze is clearly inserted as a flashback in the history of the Palace, taking up again the salient moments of its history, like an instantaneous wall picture: from the origins of the Hohenzollern dynasty, to the damage during the Second World War, to the destruction of the Palace in the 50s, its reconstruction and subsequent demolition of the Republikpalast in ’76 and 2006/08.
The proposed work is related to the baroque style by Andreas Schlüter present in the north, west and south facades, as well as on the three sides of the Schlüterhof. The styles are artistically inspired by the operation of recovering the original fragments and the formal remodelling of elements in their most complete unit as indicated by the architect Franco Stella.

The shortlisted projects of the closed competition entitled Art in Architecture will be on show throughout the month of September at the headquarters of the German Ministry of Infrastructure (BBR) in Strasse der 12. Juni 112, Berlin.
