This place is well worth seeking out. They have a changing programme of installations, which include a range of disciplines. At the moment there's some excellent video and sound work on the ground floor, running till mid January 2015, called Site Visit, which is immersive and very funny! Well recommended.

I love contemporary art, and this wasn't art at all. Maybe just contemporary. It was not only small (3 artists), but also extremely boring and meaningless.

Okay, so I am into all types of art, and some contemporary stuff, like most people, I don't get. My partner is an artist, and understands some of these inexplicable exhibitions more than i do, but here we were both in agreement that the work was great. Almost hidden away through a little alleyway, the KW is a respected Contemporary... More

Loved the mix of different media installations and the audio exhibition. So much to see. Each floor was an inspiration with some eye-opening and thought provoking artworks. The Birch Trees planted in the courtyard were an amazing addition as a symbol peace and reconciliation .

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 It's a refreshing place among many outdated and noisy museums, offering a fresh outlook on the contemporary european art scene.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

My friend and have been doing something of a modern art tour through europe and had read the wonderful reviews on trip advisor and other blogs so we went to check it out. 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
