FAHRBEREITSCHAFT

FAHRBEREITSCHAFT in Berlin-Lichtenberg is a well-preserved industrial yard with buildings mostly originating from the 1950s. Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, it was the SED Central Committee’s hub of the “Department of Transportation”; today, the site is a vivid arts and industrial yard. Among others, a picture frame manufactory, a car paint and repair shop, a boat builder, a sound studio, and a printing plant are located on the premises. On top, about 35 visual artists, dancers, and musicians have found their studios and rehearsal rooms here – for example, the ensemble KNM Berlin has been rehearsing and giving concerts here since the fall of 2020. In changing exhibition spaces, the haubrok foundation shows works from its own collection and from artists on site – while also inviting external artists to partake in exhibitions. The combination of historic architecture and exciting culture creates an interesting mixture that is rarely found in this form.
