News about the new building for the Gutenberg Museum

In a final meeting in 2022, the Mainz City Council decided that the winner of the architectural competition for the Gutenberg Museum, the architectural firm h4a Gessert + Randecker Generalplaner GmbH from Stuttgart, should be commissioned with the planning of the new Gutenberg Museum. This is another important step on the way to the new Gutenberg Museum, the structural renewal of the World Museum of the Printing Arts has been decided.

Museum director Dr. Ulf Sölter writes in his New Year's letter on the current tasks: "The whole world is curiously turning its eyes on us to see how the museum is setting itself up, where it sees itself and what the prospects are for the Gutenberg Museum in Mainz. Only a few museums have the chance for a complex new start, in which the course for the future can be fundamentally set anew. Just as conscientiously as the structural renewal of the Gutenberg Museum was planned, we want to and must also tackle the renewal of the museum's content. It is not only the director of the museum that has changed. Overall, there have been changes in crucial positions in the museum and its immediate periphery. Staff departures always mean losses, but they also contain the opportunity for a new beginning. We will seize this opportunity!"
