As one of the last remaining witnesses to Berlin’s founding history, the ruins of the former Franciscan monastery church reflect the city’s multi-layered past. In the past 700 years, the monastery has served as a school, as well as housing one of the first printing presses and botanical gardens in Berlin. Since its destruction in the Second World War, the monastery building remained a ruin. It is publicly accessible as a memorial to medieval architecture and exhibition space. Since 2016 works of contemporary art have been presented at Klosterruine Berlin that respond to the history as well as to the contemporary moment of the place and its architecture.
