Galerie Wedding – Raum für zeitgenössische Kunst is one of Berlin Mitte’s district galleries. It is located in the highly diverse area between Müllerstraße and Leopoldplatz in a listed building belonging to expressionism. Just as the architecture of the building was part of a utopian social project at the time, the gallery on the ground floor is a place for contemporary forms of artistic expression and future models of city living. Galerie Wedding champions discursive formats and its artistic direction is led by the Danish curator Solvej Helweg Ovesen. The gallery and the programme are known above all for innovative projects with local artists from all over the world and for the inclusion of public space. Beyond Berlin, the gallery has also made a name for itself with the exhibition programmes Post Other Wedding /POW, Unsustainable Privileges (UP), Soft Solidarity (SoS) and Existing Otherwise (XO).

As part of the town hall’s strategy for coping with the pandemic, the spaces of the gallery were temporarily converted into a social welfare office. This posed an unique challenge to the gallery. This status can be read as a consequence of the exhibition space’s function as interface between art, local politics and the city streets.
