A tour through the streets into the past of KW
In the early 1990s, KW Institute for Contemporary Art was founded in a former margarine factory. Their history is inseparably linked to that of their neighborhood, the surrounding streets and its buildings.
To understand KW’s historical entanglements, we embark on a walking tour of boarded-up buildings, underground garages, distant domes over burial chambers, communist clubhouses, and the courtyard of a collector who lives in a former nationalized factory. A view of a distant skyscraper overshadowing Soviet-era relics on Alexanderplatz marks the end of our tour of KW’s neighboring streets.
