Minas is a comprehensive series in the opus of Munich based photographer Rainer Viertlböck. Since 2006 he worked on Minas in the so called pyrite belt, reaching from Sevilla to Portugal. The large-size photographies show the extraterrestrial landscapes and areal pics of the abandoned spoil piles, the monumental industrial buildings and the inoperative and dilapidated machinery. The photographs recall the era of industrialization from 1860 until the end of the 20th century.

Located in the historic city center of Munich, the bunker will become a new center for exhibitions and events on architecture, urbanity, and design. A permanent exhibition on the urban development of Munich, a scale model of the city and temporary exhibitions on current national and international topics of discussion will provide a platform for public debate on the culture of building. We establish a place that is open for fresh ideas, an experimental playground for creative minds, a meeting point for interested people from all over the world. Until it’s conversion we are organizing a varied program of temporary events, installations and exhibitions.
