Galerie im Körnerpark, Neukölln’s first municipal gallery, opened its doors to national and international artists in 1983. Today, it is one of the most renowned exhibition venues for contemporary art in Berlin. The neo-baroque Orangery, with its large arcade windows, is an ideal location for artistic experiments that open up new spaces of experience for visitors. Art unfolds expansively in the long, narrow building, at times reaching up to the six-metre-high ceiling. The wide range of exhibitions and events takes the cultural diversity of the district on board and brings together people with very diverse backgrounds.
As well as exhibitions, exciting workshops are held at Young Arts Körnerpark where children and young people can discover art and link it to their own experiences.
Women’s artistic approaches to the world are an important program focus, as are thematic exhibitions that reflect socially relevant issues. The exhibitions are curated by a range of people so that the broadest possible spectrum in approaches to interpretation are brought into play.
