Exhibition and event venue of all Berlin Biennales

KW Institute for Contemporary Art aims to approach the pressing questions of our times through the production, display, and mediation of contemporary art. Founded during the turbulent period following German reunification in a derelict factory on Berlin’s Auguststraße, KW has established itself as a dynamic venue for progressive art practices. It was also here that the Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art was inaugurated in 1998. Since then, KW has served as an anchor exhibition venue for the Berlin Biennale, which presents artistic projects and mediation programs at diverse venues across the city to contribute new perspectives to contemporary cultural discourse in Berlin and beyond.
