Mindpirates

A multi-purpose space (which, while being in the very thick of Kreuzberg’s after hours scene, is notoriously difficult to find) they’ve worked tirelessly to curate, promote and produce engaging works from visual and sonic mediums. In just four years they’ve been responsible for Berlin’s first Art Porn Week, threw a party in the angular, awkward space inside an abandoned grain silo, and they dragged more than 100 musicians to an island outside of Berlin to play music for 24 hours straight (and subsequently made a film and exhibition about the experience).

On a weekly basis they host challenging film nights and experimental music evenings (that frequently turn into impromptu club nights). Their exhibition space is frequented by some of Berlin’s most fascinating visual artists. Upstairs, in their studio space, some of the city’s most creative minds work beneath the cavernous ceiling of Ralf Schmerberg’s atelier. Their latest project was a full-length feature shot at the Red Bull Music Academy in New York, called What Difference Does It Make?. It starred Brian Eno, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Nile Rodgers and Giorgio Moroder

Falckensteinstraße 48, 10997 Berlin, Germany (enter through the driveway on Schlesische Straße and walk through to the back wall, then turn right and descend the stairs in the corner – you’ll find it)
