District Berlin

Founded in 2010 on the grounds of the historic Malzfabrik, District Berlin offers an interdisciplinary think and work space for the collaborative intersection of art and other fields of knowledge.

Located within a social, cultural and historical diversity of urban environments in the Tempelhof-Schöneberg area, an important focus of District’s cultural program is laid on the shared exploration of current developments out of this defined local situation and on the contextualization of contemporary artistic practice in urban space.

To discover the politics, communities and narratives of our surroundings and to facilitate artistic and interdisciplinary projects to investigate, involve, intervene in and re-interpret these neighbourhoods is an important aim.

The grounds for District’s activities are defined by an interest to think the art space as place, where concerns, critique and ideas can be expressed and negotiated. Artistic experimentation and research is here linked with the effort to create environments which could accommodate for different modes of engagement with necessary change towards more sustainable and fair ways of living.

Collaborating with local and international cultural producers, other organisations and different audiences, District produces art projects, exhibitions, discursive and performative formats, workshops, interventions and performances in public space as well as educational activities.




Instagram Don't miss our Spotlight on Vincent Hulme @chillback4eva! Link in Bio 🎨 "Vincent lets us into his apartment with a shy smile; it’s a Monday morning and we’re all tired. The colours of his prints, hanging in his room, immediately energises us though. They are perfectly printed in purple and green. When making a print the first step for Vincent is always to create a prototype by playing around with different images, colours or shapes in Photoshop. The printing can finally begin after he’d gotten it back as an offset plate from the plate maker. “I always go back to printing. That’s the one thing I do recurrently”, he explains." 📷 by @anverjo #spotlight #lithographer #artist #serigrapher #writer #performer #art #berlin
