Haus der Kulturen der Welt

Designed to showcase and foster international contemporary art, is also functions as a forum for current cultural developments and discourses.

The Haus der Kulturen der Welt (House of the Cultures of the World or HKW) presents artistic productions from all over the world, in particular from non-European cultures and societies. Visual arts, music, literature, performing arts, film discourse and digital media are brought together in an interdisciplinary programme developed and implemented in close cooperation with international experts, curators and artists. The HKW creates theme-oriented exhibitions, events and international conferences that reflect social and global processes from an international perspective.

The site and venue of the HKW is the Kongresshalle (Congress Hall), an architectural landmark of Western modernism. The building was erected as the American contribution to the Internationale Bauausstellung Berlin (International Architecture Exhibition) in 1957.
