Welcome

 

Due to circumstances revolving around the COVID-19 virus, KW Institute for Contemporary Art and Café Bravo will be closed to visitors until further notice. We are thus following the decision of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe, Berlin, of 26 November 2020.
We will carefully monitor further developments and keep you informed about the continuation of our 2021 program. Stay healthy!

 

In the meantime, we will let various voices speak: Curators and artists will give you insights into our exhibitions. Over the coming weeks, you will find a selection of videos, installation views, and walkthroughs on our website and on our social media channels Facebook and Instagram. Enjoy!
