Special opening hours Berlin Art Week
12 —17 SEP, 12 —6pm
The Salon Dahlmann is named after Hildegard Dahlmann, the last owner of the house. The building in Marburger Straße 3 was acquired by the Miettinen family in 2010.
With the Salon Dahlmann, Timo Miettinen has established a link to Berlin’s salon culture tradition, which emerged not far from the direct neighborhood in the area of the Kurfürstendamm in West-Berlin. The Salon presents an eclectic program including a range of different formats: exhibitions, concerts, performances and workshops. The institution is not just a space for cultural meetings and events: The entire house is devoted to the Arts. Annexed to the Salon is a private apartment, beautifully furnished with a combination of German and Finnish design. It hosts a selection of artworks from the Miettinen collection with changing arrangements often in coordination with the temporary exhibitions in the Salon. For the entrance of the building, the Berlin based artist Björn Dahlem has created a permanent light installation entitled Lokale Gruppe. The courtyard of the house accommodates Säulenskulptur, a sculpture by Hans Arp, courtesy of Foundation Arp.
The Salon is open to visitors every Saturday and offers guided tours through the exhibition and the yard.
