Based on the collaborative art project of the Mallinckrodtstraße workshop on Romani building culture of the same name and the redesign of a building façade in the Nordstadt district of Dortmund in September 2019, the Faţadă/Façade exhibition focuses on a special form of architecture that has arisen in Romania, among other places, in the last 30 years. This is distinguished by expressive façades, in which many different forms of design are found. The (dream) homes are also often provided with domes or cupolas, castle battlements or silvery, shimmering, onion-shaped roofs. In addition to many building models that originated in the context of the project and that are on view in the exhibition, members of the Mallinckrodtstraße workshop will also realise a redesigning of the HMKV's entrance area. An event programme enables in-depth examination and discussion of the many different aspects of the project.
