Kunstraum Richard Sorge

Art space Kunstraum Richard Sorge, located in the East-Berlin Friedrichshain district built after WWII in a heroic Russian kitsch style, is named after the communist spy (Ian Fleming's model for James Bond) that reputedly saved the Western world from Nazism.

From its bountiful space situated in a vast, romantically crumbling and street-art covered historic Berlin brewery that hosts many art spaces, Kunstraum Richard Sorge reaches a young, and international audience, but adventurous discerning art lovers as well.

Its exhibitions focus on confrontational crafts, club/vj/kinetic art, GLBTQ art and subcultures. Like its namesake, the initiative independently works from a marginal, yet cosmopolitan position to ultimately save the world.
