HMKV at PHOENIX Halle Dortmund closes on Oct 10, 2010

PHOENIX Halle | 10/11/2010

HMKV at the PHOENIX Halle Dortmund closes on Oct 10, 2010 - exhibition "Arctic Perspective" on view only until Sunday, 8 pm

Since 2003 Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV) has been using the PHOENIX Halle in Dortmund-Hoerde as a spectacular exhibition venue. When "Arctic Perspective" will close down on Sunday night, the last exhibition (for the time being) by HMKV at the PHOENIX Halle will have come to an end. The city of Dortmund (dortmund-project) has rented the PHOENIX Halle from the State of Nordrhein-Westfalen (NRW.URBAN) only until the end of 2010.

The PHOENIX Halle was built in 1905 as blower plant for the blast furnaces of Phoenix-West and served as a repairable spares storage until the closing down of the steel mill in 1998. In 2001 the State of Nordrhein-Westfalen bought the area of Phoenix-West and conferred it to the Landesentwicklungsgesellschaft (LEG Stadtentwicklung GmbH & Co. KG). The PHOENIX Halle was renovated with funds from the dortmund-project and LEG (today: NRW.URBAN) in 2003.

In the past eight years, Hartware MedienKunstVerein has realized a total of 15 large-scale international exhibitions in the 2.200 square meter-large PHOENIX Halle. The most important ones among these exhibitions were "Games. Computer games by artists" (2003), "Nam June Paik Award" (2004), "The Wonderful World of irational.org" (2006), "History Will Repeat Itself" (2007), "Waves – The Art of the Electromagnetic Society" (2008), "Anna Kournikova ... Art in the Age of Intellectual Property" (2008), "Awake are only the spirits - On ghosts and their media" (2009) and "Arctic Perspective" (2010). Many of these exhibitions have been touring to other venues and institutions in Germany and abroad.

Since May 2010 HMKV is using - in parallel to PHOENX Halle - its new venue on the third floor of the Dortmunder U - Center for Art and Creativity. From 2011 HMKV, together with other partners, will be additionally using the sixth floor of the Dortmunder U for large-scale exhibition projects.

The current exhibition "Arctic Perspective" is on view at PHOENIX Halle Dortmund until Sunday, October 10, 2010, 8 pm.
