About

A cosmopolitan place for contemporary art.

The Haus der Kulturen der Welt is a place for international contemporary arts and a forum for current developments and discourse. Located in the capital city of Berlin, it presents artistic productions from around the world, with a special focus on non-European cultures and societies. Visual arts, music, literature, performing arts, film, academic discussions and digital media are all linked in an interdisciplinary programme that is unique in Europe. In a time when local and national issues are inextricably tied to international developments, the Haus enables the voices of the world to be heard in their great diversity and gives them a productive place in the inner-societal dialogue. In cooperation with artists and experts, it offers visitors opportunities to grapple with the conflicts, challenges and questions of our time: How do our respective living conditions impinge upon each other? What kind of a future do we want to live in? How can we shape our world more intelligently, but also more poetically?

Point of connection with the world

Haus der Kulturen der Welt brings together artistic and social relationships in a special network that extends throughout and beyond Berlin. Here visitors can experience art as the practice of experimenting, questioning and discovering. Culture is in a perpetual state of change and comprises everyday as well as pop cultures. Working with these, the artistic formats establish connections with the visitors’ realm of experience and offer opportunities for active participation and identification. Against the backdrop of the transformation in Berlin, Germany and Europe, HKW Berlin provides orientation in an increasingly complex world, reflecting societal and global processes from an international perspective.
