KW Institute is a spacious and modern venue for art, with a charming inner yard, which you can enjoy especially during the summer, and many floors, right in gallery-packed Auguststraße. While sipping a coffee in the yard, the glass cube will throw your image right back at you, and catch you wondering about the elephant-trumpet-looking-horn hanging above the entrance.
KW was built on the site of a margarine factory, and was founded in 1990. The Institute is the main venue of the Berlin Biennial, which takes place in collaboration with other venues around the city. Besides hosting interdisciplinary exhibitions on rotation, KW also has an art residence project and offers working space to invited artists.
