A Japanese tea house, an audio installation with sounds of Nigeria, a two-part flagpole made of bronze:Numerous, often large-scale works of contemporary art can be discovered throughout the spacious displays at Berlin's Humboldt Forum. Works by artists from different cultures around the world enrich the collections shown in the exhibitions of the Ethnological Museum, Museum of Asian Art, and the Federal State of Berlin. In addition, seven works of Kunst am Bau (art in architecture) have been realized at the Humboldt Forum. They concern themselves with the location's history and the Humboldt Forum as a site representing the world, encouraging encounters and exchange, or paying tribute to the Forum's namesakes, the brothers Wilhelm and Alexander von Humboldt. This book presents selected works of art in informative, richly associative texts and impressive photographs. Together they offer entirely new insights into the diverse voices that make up the Humboldt Forum cultural venue.
