A new center for contemporary art and culture can be found in the generous rear courtyard of Kluckstraße 23 in the southern part of Berlin’s Tiergarten. It is operated by the art collective Frontviews, an international group of artists and theorists: they have decided to call the space HAUNT.
It is located in the former training center for municipal gardeners where the grounds and training rooms of the Department of Parks have been left abandoned for seven years and given over to the wild plants and the wilder moods of nature. With a small reconfiguration which gives nature a chance to recuperate and spread out in the courtyard garden (approximately 400 meters), the collective carefully works on the side of its green and great inhabitants and presents a series of creative activities.
The HAUNT courtyard is now in the middle of an art pavilion and in the rear section of a factory building. Through this setting, artists working in a variety of disciplines are encouraged to develop thematically suitable work that enters into a dialogue with the characteristics of the outdoor area. Alongside exhibitions, a variety of forms of performing arts and workshops are offered on a regular basis.
