Fotografiska aims to become the largest private museum in the world in 2023
Three new locations in the three existing ones - Stockholm, Tallinn and New York - adds the Swedish museum Fotografiska
Three new locations in the three existing ones - Stockholm, Tallinn and New York - adds the Swedish museum Fotografiska plans to expand in 2022 and 2023 to Miami, Berlin and Shanghai.
Upon completion of the expansion, it will become the largest private museum in the world. In 2010, the first Fotografiska opened in Stockholm and in 2019 it expanded to New York and Tallinn. "The idea for Fotografiska has always been to invite culturally curious audiences to see art in a welcoming environment" said in a statement Yoram Roth, executive chairman of Culture Works, the parent company.
"At Fotografiska we bring to the overall experience a sense of hospitality and community, and we know that this sense of belonging, connection and inspiration from photography will be appreciated around the world," he added. The museum will continue to focus on photography exhibitions and "film-based works" that combine "ultra-modern" with shows aimed at a wider audience.
The 5.388-square-meter Fotografiska Berlin will be on the former Kunsthaus Tacheles, a building erected in 1908 as a German-owned department store. The building is already being remodeled by the offices of Herzog & de Meuron and Studio Aisslinger, and its inauguration is scheduled for September 2022.
In Shanghai, Fotografiska will be installed in a 4.645-square-meter warehouse complex being remodeled by Neri & Hu.
In 2023, it is planned to inaugurate the 3.901-square-foot Fotografiska Miami in Allapattah, inside an industrial building that is being renovated by the Rockwell Group office. It will be directly opposite the Superblue, which specializes in experiential art and next to the Rubell Museum.
