TRANSFORMART is the new art festival in Oberschöneweide. It takes place on the last weekend before the summer break on the premises of the former transformer factory, Transformatorenwerk Oberschöneweide (Rathenau-Hallen). The festival is organised by artists who have studios in the Rathenau-Hallen. We are happy to co-organise the festival with the owner of the Rathenau-Hallen, Toruro GmbH & Co. KG.
In one respect, the name TRANSFORMART refers to the important history of the Rathenau-Hallen as an industrial location, which will be visible and tangible during the festival through the opening of some of its most impressive buildings.
Simultaneously, “TRANSFORMART” implies an extended concept of art, to be explored through the connection of classic and contemporary genres of visual art, performing arts, and music.
