Project Space Festival Berlin
July 31–August 31, 2016

Vernissage: July 31, 2–7pm

Center of Minimum Distance
Wallstraße 32
10179 Berlin


For the third summer running, the Project Space Festival​ invites Berlin to discover the experimental practices of its project spaces. Alongside project spaces with established sites (but significantly different modes of operating), the festival presents project spaces occupying a former watch tower, a traffic school for children, and a hidden excavation site.

The Festival takes place over an entire month. Each day, from August 1 to 31, one project space has the possibility to realize and present an exhibition, a performance or a participatory project. We are delighted to announce the participation of the following spaces:

alpha nova & galerie futura / Apartment Project / Bruch & Dallas* / centrum / Comedy Club* / DISPLAY / District / Frankfurt am Main / Galerie BRD* / grüntaler9 / insitu / Kinderhook & Caracas / KN / Kreuzberg Pavillon / KuLe / Labor Neunzehn / LAGE EGAL / La Plaque Tournante / Larrys Show / mp43 / Neue Berliner Räume / NON Berlin / NOTE ON / Radical Praxes/nationalmuseum / Raumerweiterungshalle / Santa Lucia / Schneeeule / Sonntag / Tacho / TOKONOMA* / uqbar
*invited interregional spaces

The provisional center of this year's Project Space Festival is an open green space, The Center of Minimum Distance—a small, isolated paradise bearing traces that suggest this place is used only rarely, and even then, on a temporary basis. Also the title of the Festival blog, The Center of Minimum Distance is the calculated geographic center of all Berlin project spaces that applied to take part in 2016’s festival: a common ground. This public space can be freely entered, and forms the site of a generous picnic for the Festival Vernissage.
