Berlin Art House SomoS provides a spacious gallery, beautiful and comfortable ateliers and guest rooms, a semi-public salon and kitchen; and unique music production facilities.
The SomoS Art House is situated on the first floor of a 1890's mixed residential/commercial building at Kottbusser Damm 95 in the popular creative area dubbed Kreuzkölln, where the Kreuzberg and Neukölln neighborhoods meet; a stylishly renovated historic space that has functioned through the years as a 1920's Kaffeehaus; an erotic cinema complex and pool hall. Within walking distance are numerous cafes/restaurants/clubs, art spaces and institutions like Künstlerhaus Bethanien, the BBK Print Facilities and Media Studios, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien and NGBK.
From this lovingly renovated and inspiring space SomoS organizes its own cultural events and closely works with artists and curators to realize their own projects.
SomoS' organizers have extensive experience in curating, educational, and audio visual and food-art event organization, music production, media- and visual art. At SomoS’ new location the creative projects of the former art space Kunstraum Richard Sorge and the Playground Berlin crew are continued; embedded in a broader practice, involving cooperation, art production and education.
