The daadgalerie serves as the main venue for the activities of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program. Founded in 1978 and originally located on Kurfürstenstr. in Berlin’s Tiergarten district, and later on Zimmerstr. in Berlin-Mitte, the daadgalerie opened its new Berlin premises on Oranienstr. 161 in Kreuzberg in January of this year. Individual positions of program guest artists, as well as the artistic work of all four program disciplines, are now presented on two floors, allowing their interrelationships and parallel thought processes to be experienced as a synchronous whole.
The exhibition spaces on the ground floor of the daadgalerie are for presenting primarily new works created and developed in Berlin. Here the focus is on showcasing artistic experimentation and new beginnings, group shows, collaborative projects, and performances. The new daadgalerie_studio located on the first floor makes it possible for the first time since the founding of the Artists-in-Berlin Program in 1963 to present most of the event program featuring the disciplines of visual arts, film, literature, and music in a central, recognizable location.
