District Berlin is a space for artistic and social experiments at the intersection of visual arts and other forms of knowledge production.

Since 2009, District has realized a multi-faceted program with the aim of creating an ongoing dialogue between artistic, curatorial, research, and educational practices. With a focus on contextualizing artistic practice in urban space, District develops collaborative and research-oriented formats for art in the expanded field.

Exploring different kinds of neighborhood and ways of dissolving boundaries, as well as emancipatory moments of amicability District creates occasions for opening up the present towards diverse perspectives and types of knowledge by means of art. Grounded in feminist, queer and anti-colonial approaches, District explores the curatorial as a performative as much as analytic practice and probes new kinds of community.


In collaboration with local and international partners District realizes art projects, exhibitions, performances and interventions in public space, discursive formats, workshops, publications and artistic education. Fostering discourse at the crossings of everyday life and global society, District takes up, researches, questions, and links ideas and politics in the interplay between bodies and urban space, infrastructure and desire, economy and performativity, history and imagination. Based on its decentralized location within the Berlin district of Tempelhof- Schöneberg, District deliberately offers a platform for the articulation of contemporary perspectives that develop important alternatives to the status quo.

Partners & Support

As a space, an idea and a practice, District has emerged from a growing, heterogeneous group of individuals, initiatives, and institutions that participate programmatically.
