Very good review is based on the food in the cafe, they had a lovely club sandwich and tuna salad (service was a bit slow) sadly we were there in August and there was no art currently on, so sad faces all round. Seems like a legit place for art... in season.

Great location, good atmosphere, interesting changing exhibitions. WELL WORTH the visit! It's a refreshing place among many outdated and noisy museums, offering a fresh outlook on the contemporary european art scene.

I visited around Berlin Art Week, when there were a couple of great painting exhibitions on, as well as some more performative pieces which I think are more the gallery's norm. The show I saw was curated in a really imaginative way and had a couple of events alongside it (including talks about painting from a makeshift podium). In short,... More

This institute is unfinished as of July 3rd, 2013. There was an exhibit with 6 pieces in the basement, then two empty floors. On the third floor... More

Off the beaten track but a very interesting visit. Large scale exhibition in an old margarine factory. Would go again go see what's going on. Seemed to be in the middle of setting up new gallery spaces

Like for example, there was this installation, where there was nothing but an EMPTY fridge in the room. I said to myself wtf, like that i too can become an artist. Then I entered into another room where all... More

Visited the gallery in January 2011, saw the Absalon exhibition. Really cool stuff, I remember it didn't cost too much to get in but it was a little out of the way to find. If I was ever in Berlin again, I would check it out.
