Every year since 2006 the Kunstverein Tiergarten coordinates an annual art festival – originally the Moabit culture days Inselglück, and for 10 years now the festival ORTSTERMIN. Artists in Moabit and in the Hansaviertel open their doors for a weekend and present their work to a wide audience. Both artists who are firmly established in the district, as well as those who live and work here only temporarily, take part. They all use the opportunity for exchange and communication. The public space is filled with art, and numerous events such as concerts, readings, theatre performances, and discussion rounds, supplement the visual arts based programme.
For years the Kunstverein Tiergarten has been providing impulses and encouraging artists to take a stand on specific political and socially relevant issues. Specially developed projects – be it exhibitions in the Galerie Nord or video screenings in the windows of the gallery – facilitate this goal and explore the respective festival themes at the central art venue in the Turmstraße.
Today ORTSTERMIN has become an established art festival in Moabit and the Hansaviertel. Each year it finds new ways to draw attention to the multifaceted artistic potential of the district, and has an impact far beyond the boundaries of the neighbourhood.
