The MIWO has a guiding principle. The idea of building and living with cultural responsibility. As a family-run company, the community aspect is particularly important to us. This is reflected in our architecture and in our housing stock. As a rental housing construction and management company, we have been dealing with people's homes and living spaces on a daily basis since 1952. Our cultural commitment has this too. Architecture creates spatial structures for human interaction. Art creates new spaces of perception. We combine both in our project series "kunstundwohnen" and "architekturundkunst". The dialogue between art and architecture is the focus of the MIWO commitment. In many MIWO new building projects since the mid-1990s, the installation of art has been an integral part of the architectural design. We open up our existing portfolio of residential complexes and apartments to artistic interventions that reinterpret the given architectural structures and positively change the living environment of our tenants. The aim of our commitment is to promote contemporary art and architecture while at the same time shaping the quality of life in the community. Focused on young positions in contemporary art, we also feel committed to the dynamic cultural scene in the Bonn/Cologne region out of conviction. MIWO Gesellschaft mbH & Co.

Art and architecture in dialogue With the "kunstundwohnen" project series, MIWO opens up residential complexes that were built in the 1950s and 1960s and have typical design elements of the architecture of that time, for artistic interventions that reinterpret those architectural structures characteristic of the post-war period and “modernize” with a contemporary perspective. Since the first project "Bild mit Wohnung" with the artist Detlef Beer in 2006, an artist has been invited every year to deal artistically with this inventory of the MIWO and to reflect on the residential building as a place of everyday existence. The projects realized so far are characterized by an artistic variety that reflects the range of contemporary art production and discourses: From performative approaches (Detlef Beer, "Bild mit Wohnung", 2006) to minimalist interventions in the outdoor area (Martin Noel, "Bekennen Farb ’, 2008; Tim Trastenroth, ‘Raumstein’, 2010) and temporary film projections that bring a concise visual shift in perception into the architectural situation for just a short period of time (Claudia Desgranges, ‘Überblendung’, 2009) through to participatory art strategies. In 2011, for example, Martin Pfeifle installed a sculpture made of a total of 64 neopolen foam cubes in the green outdoor area of the Lutfridstrasse residential area, which the residents also use as places to sit and play and whose composition can be constantly changed. In this way, the sculpture became a communication medium in the social context of the housing complex (Martin Pfeifle, "RADO", 2011). The site-related and on-site artistic interventions often refer to those architectural elements such as passageways or stairwells that are no longer present in the everyday attention of the residents. With strategies such as over-marking the casual with color (Friedhelm Falke, "Das habitual picture", 2007; Martin Noel, "Bekennen Farbe", 2008) or all-over painting in the stairwell (Karim Noureldin, "Tupelo", 2012; Esther Stocker , "GEOMETRIA", 2013; Maik and Dirk Löbbert, "Staircase", 2014; Jan van der Ploeg "Wall Painting No. 412", 2015...) not only does the overlooked become visible again, but a significance of the place is created. Only art can identify places and add a new layer of meaning to the architecture. This "art in construction" at MIWO therefore also poses a challenge for the artists. On the one hand, there is initially a certain limitation due to the existing architectural structure of the MIWO residential buildings, but on the other hand, a welcome experimental one opens up Space. Artists are often confronted with the situation of deviating from their own, practiced aesthetic processes and techniques. This already starts with the selection of other materials or substrates on which the work is to be mounted and dimensions that differ from studio practice. “Art in architecture” means entering a frameless space in which art as art must first find its place. In addition, there is the crucial fact that the work of art encounters an audience - the residents*, for whom the "art in the building" will be part of their daily environment in the future. All "kunstundwohnen" projects are flanked by an educational program in the form of vernissages, art history lectures and catalogues. The positive response from tenants has confirmed the goal of the commitment: to actively promote contemporary art and at the same time strengthen the community aspect. text: dr Jutta Voorhoeve All art and living projects: art and living #1 2006 Detlef Beer "Picture with apartment" art and living #2 2007 Friedhelm Falke "The usual picture" art and living #3 2008 Martin Noël "Showing colors" art and living #4 2009 Claudia Desgranges "Overlay" art and living 1TP5 T5 2010 Tim Trantenroth "Space stone Kunstundwohnen #6 2011 Martin Pfeifle “RADO” Kunstundwohnen #7 2012 Karim Noureldin “Tupelo” Kunstundwohnen #8 2013 Esther Stocker “GEOMETRIA” Kunstundwohnen #9 2014 Maik and Dirk Löbbert “Staircase” Kunstundwohnen #10 2015 Jan van der Ploeg, "Wall Painting 412" Kunstundwohnen #11 2017 Thomas Vinson "Magdalena K."

Architecture and art in dialogue The idea of building with cultural responsibility was and is the maxim of our society. This also applies in particular to the art projects that have been set in motion. The MIWO initiates the dialogue between architecture and art.
MIWO also initiates cultural events in its own rental properties, in the form of theatre, music concerts or exhibitions for or even with the tenants who live and feel comfortable in our properties and who are the focus of our society. The fact that the events take place directly on site means that people have a direct confrontation with art and culture in connection with their own living environment.
