9th – 18th September
“We are artists and activists who want to speak out the truth of our minds and bodies through art. We are at war with Patriarchy and Capitalism. We resurrect the ugly, the fat, the marginalised, the witches and revolutionaries to fight against what is imposed, the invisible chains of our oppressor break with the nudity of our truth.
a collaboration between the Werkhalle Wiesenburg and Tanzhalle Wiesenburg

The History of the Wiesenburg
curated by Heather Allen for Berlin Urban Development Day 2022
in the Werkhalle Wiesenburg and House 5 (former women’s shelter)
A fascinating icon in the social history of Berlin, the Wiesenburg opened as an independent homeless shelter in 1896. With time, it took on additional roles as a temporary potato warehouse, munitions production site, film set and more, culminating in its current development as a cultural and social location.
Performance referencing the Werkhalle’s original role as the shelter’s laundry.
