The Wewerka Pavillon is the showroom of the Münster Academy of Art. It was designed in 1987 by the architect and artist Stefan Wewerka for the documenta 8 in Kassel. As a loan from its owner, Axel Bruchhäuser, the pavilion was transferred to Münster and installed close to Tormin Bridge on the banks of Lake Aa. It is under the joint care and responsibility of the city and the Academy of Art. On the one hand, the location in the recreational park offers young artists the chance to reach a larger audience with their works and, on the other hand, enables the citizens of Münster to experience the academy and its students.
Due to its unusual double character as both a closed off showroom and a sculptural autonomous object, the pavilion represents an experimental space for the young artists as well as quite a demanding challenge.
