Since 2002, the Federal Administrative Court (Bundesverwaltungsgericht) has occupied the building of the former Imperial Court of Justice (Reichsgericht) – the German Reich’s supreme civil and criminal court from 1879 to 1945. The building embodied the significance and weight of the judiciary’s status as the third branch among the state’s separate powers, matching in importance the contemporaneous Reichstag building in Berlin, which served the legislative power. The building’s juridical history and its architecture alike reflect the tumult of German history during this period. What could be more fitting, than that a society for Art and Justice (Kunst und Justiz) should make its home in such a court building, whose architects envisioned it as a «Gesamtkunstwerk» – a total work of art, immersively fusing artistic disciplines. With its richly decorated, partially gilded oak panelling, imperial insignia, and coats of arms – of the GermanLänder at the time of the Reich, and of the towns where higher regional courts sat – the Große Sitzungssaal (Great Courtroom) offers an impressive setting for the society’s concerts.
