Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2014. Known locally as the “Schwangere Auster” (trans. pregnant oyster) not only is HKW unique from an architechtural point of view and of historical significance, this stunning building in the middle of Tiergarten also houses a formidable series of high class exhibitions, concerts and special events such as the Transmediale, Berlinale, Wasser Musik and Worldtronics.

HKW is Germany’s national centre for the presentation and discussion of international contemporary arts, with a special focus on non-European cultures and societies. It presents art exhibitions, theater and dance performances, concerts, author readings, films and academic conferences on Visual Art and culture. It is one of the few institutions which, due to their national and international standing and the quality of their work, receive funding from the federal government as so-called “lighthouses of culture.”
