In the location's words:

The Gropius Bau is one of the most important exhibition venues in Europe. Located in the heart of Berlin, the Gropius Bau presents highly acclaimed exhibitions of contemporary and modern art as well as performances, workshops, discourse events and film series. At the heart of its program is the opening of the institution - towards a place of artistic creation, gathering and exchange.

In this way, the Gropius Bau ties in with its own history: The neo-Renaissance building at Niederkirchnerstraße 7 was opened in 1881 as a museum and school of arts and crafts with classrooms and studios. By inviting artists to move into rooms in the Gropius Bau as part of a one-year residency, as well as collaborations with the immediate neighborhood and local initiatives, artistic work, mutual learning and the expansion of perspectives are once again firmly anchored in the building.

The center of the exhibition house is the atrium, which is accessible free of charge and where performances and transdisciplinary projects regularly enter into dialogue with the impressive architecture alongside expansive installations. Visitors can round off their visit in Beba, the Gropius Bau's restaurant, the bookshop or the Gropius Grove, which is located on the west side of the building. The Gropius Bau has been part of the Berliner Festspiele since 2001.
