  • In the formative very nice courtyard with bunk beds, seating areas, the to the relax invite, to get rid of Rihanna 'meets', which unfortunately slipped the face on the chest (J. Sebastian Pelaez). Otherwise, the works of art that spread over several floors and a toilet, are very critical.

  • When people ask me what the highlight of Berlin was- I'd definitely say this was. There was just so much to see, especially since we bought a ticket which allowed us access to all the Berlin Biennale ...  more »

  • After traveling europe and indulging in the wide array of many cities' contemporary art scenes. I found this to be lacking in raw talent and the personal immersion which a person feels which great art pulls us into. The exhibits lacked any deep reflection and although were aestetically pleasing, could have been much better with Berlin's own creative culture right outside the door.
  • The museum to go in order to find contemporary art and exhibitions. Well organized and thought-through. Will come again.
  • If you want to see pretentious works with some hollywow hipster effects like a sugar rush, you are going to love this place. But if you are looking for creations that inspire all your energetic levels for the rest of your life... well, no... I suggest this is not the thing you are looking for. The thing with 95% of contemporary artists is that they don't know what "art" is, nor where it came from, nor how to deliver anything that really set people free from any ties to the society that has been set up by people who commissions these ignorant artists. A circle that is still unbroken for too many people. So, most artists only make things worse, unpurposely for their benefit, but also to the benefit of their commisioners. And this last group is the most obscene parasites the world has known. A wonderful place, if you know what to look for. It is a bit like the matrix, but than for real.
  • Amazing installations. My favorite so far in Berlin for contemporary art.
  • Interesting rooms. Good place for a exhibition.
