About the Museum
The Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien presents group and thematic exhibitions on contemporary social and cultural processes in the context of contemporary art. Key aspects are the contextualization of the projects and the consideration of diversity, internationality and local references. The Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien is located in the former Diakonissen Hospital on Mariannenplatz, which was built in 1847. With 450 square meters of exhibition space and over 220 linear meters of suspended space, the rooms meet the requirements for medium-sized shows. Some six exhibition projects are presented each year in cooperation with cooperating institutions, curators or artist groups. The exhibitions are accompanied by guided tours, films, discussions and artist talks. The Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien has its own art collection of around 450 works including the works of Hans Baluschek, Erich Büttner and various artists who lived in Kreuzberg, such as Hanefi Yeter, Akbar Behkalam, Luise Grimm or Christa Eichler.
