The Kunsthaus Zug mobile is a mobile exhibition room in the form of a special container with heating / air conditioning and a security system – presumably the only one of its kind on earth. It was developed by the Gruppe Baukunst <rheinflügel> Düsseldorf on behalf of the society of friends of the Kunsthaus Zug and built in Hamburg.
The mobile museum has been on the road at locations near and far since May 2002, presenting artistic and socio-cultural projects in cooperation with changing partners (townships, museums, schools, senior citizens’ residences, etc.). It stops on village squares, edges of forests, in front of train stations, on lake shores, next to monasteries, on the Bull Market or in the middle of the city.
The travelling museum has become an integral part of the public realm, fulfilling new purposes in the process, and turning the museum into an adventure.
