KW Institute for Contemporary Art
More gallery and “art lab” than museum, the KW Institute for Contemporary Art was established in the 1990’s to foster creative expression and support for the arts in Berlin. The five-story building has gallery space for rotating exhibitions and workshops, a courtyard, and six studios for resident artists. The institute has solidified its standing as one of the city’s premier art foundations through partnerships with renowned international institutions, including P.S.1/MOMA in New York City. In 1996, the KW founded the Berlin Biennale, a biennial contemporary arts festival.
