More about the event (http://25-jahre.kuenstlerhaus-am-acker.de/:):
On the occasion of the 25th birthday of the “Künstlerhaus am Acker!” and the 5th birthday of the “Institut für Alles Mögliche”, we take a look back at the history of the building at number 18 Ackerstraße, where the Institut has been based since 2011.
From housing local business and generations of families to narrowly withstanding the damage wreaked by two world wars, Ackerstraße 18, built in 1871, has a rich and multifaceted history.
Following the political turmoil of the 20th century, in 1989 the city underwent a further upheaval due to the fall of the Berlin wall. The gaping holes left behind – not just the physical empty spaces in the urban landscape, but ideological too – opened up a wealth of opportunities. During this reign of possibility, the then derelict house at Ackerstraße 18 was squatted in by a group of artists, who subsequently purchased and renovated the house and in 1990 founded the two entities Galerie Artacker and Künstlerhaus am Acker!. The founding of these two organisations fostered the further development of the already established creative community and environment of artistic collaboration in the house.
It is because of this that the Institut has also been able to call Ackerstraße 18 home for the past 4 years.
In modern day Berlin, the noncommercial hub of creativity at Ackerstraße 18 continues to stand strong while remnants of the post-Wende subculture are continually dismantled to make way for new developments, or exploited for capitalist gain.
Join us as we celebrate 25 years of artistic output from the building by attempting to gather everyone who has been involved with the location since it’s conception in 1990. We will show an exhibition featuring work by artists who have previously been part of projects at Ackerstraße 18, as we invite them to exhibit works here once again. In addition to this exhibition, we will take a deeper look at the house as we explore its complete history through the means of a collection of objects, documents and personal stories. There will be a week-long program of events centered on this topic and culminating in a summer party in the back yard of the house.
